Purdue Beats Iowa in the Annual Pink Zone Game

One of my favorite games of the year is the pink zone game at Mackey Arena. It is a welcome change with a different uniform, and a crowd that is unique looking as well. Over the course of a season you pictures all start to look the same. You can change equipment, but in the end it is the same action. The spots you can shoot from are so limited as well. One thing that can make your photos look different is a new jersey. I have always liked this jersey for some reason, and I would always mark this game down on my calendar to attend. With the special uniforms on Purdue did not disappoint as they weathered an Iowa storm to take the victory. It was good to see the team celebrating in Mackey Arena again.

April Wilson is honored prior to the Purdue women’s basketball game against Iowa with a commemorative ball by head coach Sharon Versyp for her 1,000th career point.

April Wilson is Honored For Her 1,000th Point

Before the game April Wilson was honored for her 1,000th point that she scored early on in the game against Nebraska. This is an elite club to belong to, and April is not done yet. In fact she is moving up the all time list for Purdue in a couple of categories with every game played. She really has been fun to watch over the course of her career. With that being said her career is not done yet, and she has a lot of basketball still to play this year.

More Photos From the Game

I had so much fun at the game that I created an Exposure page for the event. You can find that page here. I have said it many times, but I love the way that Exposure gives you the ability to create a story for the event. It also has a magic formula that makes a small jpeg look fantastic. I will keep doing these pages as the season goes on, but as the summer comes and my schedule fills up a bit more I might go to a weekly Exposure page.
