Wolves keep the title race open!

Despite covering tons of games in the league, I don’t always ‘enjoy’ the games – no worries with that on Friday, one of the most entertaining BBL games in a long time!

Paul Guede on Wolves win

Definitely no love lost between the two teams, right from the get-go Alex Owumi and Fab Flournoy had a nice heated exchange of words, Darius Defoe and Rob Thurman were competing under the basket… it was just good passion from both teams desperate to win the game.

Rob Thurman on Wolves win over Eagles

Not sure of the last time I’ve seen Eagles 0/10 from three point range after first 20 minutes. Also, missing four free throws in a row when it was a one point game late in the fourth..

Dave F on Eagles game vs Wolves

The action was best summed up by Wolves coach Paul James “If that game doesn’t make the fans come back to see a game… then I don’t know what will”.

From Eagles point of view, as well as losing the game – they now have to worry over the ankle of Scott Martin, who landed awkwardly after going for a rebound ball in the opening half.

But as always, let the players and coaches do the talking – and photos to tell the story.

Finding new angles to cover the same sport !!

Something every photographer comes to deal with, especially after cover the same sport for many years. You need to somehow be better/different than all the competition out there.

For me that has in the recent years meant exploring photographing basketball from above the basket. In one of the recent posts I posted an image from EuroCup game from behind the backboard. Now – a glimpse at what the action looks like when looking down on the basket from the ceiling.

This image was taken in a British Basketball League game at Worcester Arena on Halloween 2014 – in a game featuring Worcester Wolves and Bristol Flyers. In the action Flyers, Greg Streete is attempting to block a shot by Wolves, Alex Owumi.

A longer post is coming with more images from the game – and for photographers a longer post explaining the instalment of the camera and other practicalities.
