Ducks : 98 – AZ State: 90
It’s hard to believe this is the second to last game of the season. Being new to basketball photography, I have found it to be fun and exciting. A person gets to know the players and what to expect from them during the game. Lexi Petersen plays hard every moment she is on the floor. As a result, she is the player I have the most shots of laying on the floor. If you play hard, expect some conflict. The next player to hit the deck most often would be Jillian. She is quite a player.
It is neat to have experienced her stand out year as an Oregon player. She has had a record setting year. It was amazing to photograph numerous games with her having record setting nights on the floor. And, she will be just a junior next year. Another player with an outstanding year is Chrishae Rowe. She is quite a player and scorer. Such talent and she was just a freshman this year.
It will be sad to say goodbye to the seniors. Ariel Thomas will be miised. She is another outstanding player. Danielle Love will also be missed in the post position. I didn’t get to see Chynna Miley play much but she was a lights out shooter during the pre-game shoot around. There is some excellent talent returning next year. Drea Toler looks to be an exciting player at the guard position. She is fun to watch dribble and drive to the basket.
It was an exciting basketball season and I was fortunate to be a photographer and witness a record setting year by a couple of Duck players. Thanks girls!
