Michigan vs South Carolina for the NIT Title at Madison Square Garden

POST #    2082

Fittingly during last night's NIT finals, the Michigan pep-band played "Respect," as both Michigan and South Carolina were looking for some after being left out of the NCAA Tournament. I think to make it all the way to New York to play in the finals garners respect for both teams, but only the Gamecocks emerged victorious. USC jumped out to an early lead, never trailed, and only occasionally let Michigan gain a glimmer of hope. Each time the Wolverines had a shot to come back, they would allow easy lay ups, take some bad shots, or get shut down by USC's defense.

Not quite the same result as 2004 when I also went to Madison Square Garden. And I tell you, if there's any arena that can kill the emotion of a college basketball game, it's Madison Square Garden.

What kind of camera do you use? And you have become a better photographer. The biggest change I see over two years (because it was red and yellow in 2004 too)is an improvement in the quality of your shots. the ones from this year are excellent.
