Belleville West Defeats Whitney Young to Win 4A Championship

My first trip to the IHSA boys basketball championships. I was able to shoot the 4A games on Friday evening and the 3A and 4A games on Saturday. Really clean light at the Peoria Civic Center and lots of it. 

Learned a lot from Worsum Robinson. He is always so kind. And he gave me a few pointers. I had a nice talk with Allen Cunningham as well. He sold me on the virtues of a 300mm/2.8 for basketball. I'll have to pick one of those up. 

The basketball games were fun. It was great to see EJ Liddell. He was as advertised and then some--Mr. Basketball indeed. 

First, are the photos from the Championship game. I would like to write a lot about the Finals weekend but I don't want to do it all at once. So I am dividing the photos up but game.
