The Boilermakers and the Buckeyes Duke It Out
Yesterday I was back in Mackey Arena to photograph the Big Ten contest between the Purdue Boilermakers and the Ohio State Buckeyes. I have always tried to make it to these games as the Buckeyes and Boilers always seem to have something good for the fans. Yesterday was no exception. Both teams made their cases, and looked to be in control. In the end overtime was needed after the Boilers could not score with regulation winding down. It was a physical contest that was fun to watch. It also made for some good photos. Whitney Bays had a monster game for the Boilers scoring 22 points and pulling in 19 rebounds. On the other side of the ball freshman Kelsey Mitchell scored 37 points for Ohio State. She was the real difference maker scoring 31 of those after the break.
The Purdue Cheerleading Squad Takes 5th at Nationals
During a media timeout yesterday the Purdue Cheerleading squad was recognized for their fifth place finish at nationals. As they were coming out I noticed that they were very excited, and had a few trophies. I made some photos as it seemed like a great moment. This one was my favorite.
The Return of the Huddle Cam
If you have read this blog for very long you know that I really enjoy shooting huddles. I made my way over to the player introductions in order to give it a go. Here is my first huddle cam of 2015. I am sure that there will be many more before the year is over.
Below I have included a couple of other shots that I liked from the game. The full gallery can be found on my website here.
