2009 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament
This weekend I did something I don't get a chance to do often, but it was something I really enjoy. I photographed basketball at the Women's ACC Tournament in Greensboro. The championship game Sunday was a thriller. Maryland and Duke fought it out for the entire game with Maryland leading going into the last few seconds. Duke then managed to force an overtime in which Maryland finally prevailed 92 to 89. The game featured some of the top women players in the country in Marissa Coleman and Kristi Toliver from Maryland and Abby Waner from Duke, and all the players from both teams were on their best games. If you haven't seen women's NCCA basketball, you should. Great teams and great play.
