Hoop Fest!

Last weekend, I spent two days photographing 16 teams and eight games of basketball at a really nice, pretty well lit (relatively speaking) high school gym in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The National High School Hoops Festival featured teams from Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Mississippi which happened to showcase some of the top talent in the country. A few people of note in attendance..Roy Williams, Bruce Pearl, Tom Crean and Michael Starghill. Funny thing about these high school "showcases": about 20% of the people are parents, friends and family. The other half (Yogi Berra) are scouts, coaches, media, hangers on, sponsors, fans and folks who's hands will be out if/when some of these kids make it to the Association. Just my two cents. Shout out to Nike who had the Lebron VI's on sale for only $140. No checks, no credit cards. Straight cash, homey.
