The Bulldogs are Hot !!

After several weeks we had another opportunity to go to see the McPherson College Bulldogs play basketball. This past Saturday the 'Dogs played their in-county rivals the Swedes of Bethany College.

The Bulldog Men's team have gotten hot at the right time of the season. After a slow start they have won eight straight games, include Saturday night's contest, an 81 - 68 victory.

These photos are from Saturday's action

The team is playing with speed and control. They made the extra pass to get the open look all night. They have developed good depth in their bench rotation as well. The 'Dogs have set themselves up to have a first round home game in the KCAC post-season tourney.

These images are from my new D7000. All were shot with the 70-200 f/2.8 VR I lens. These were all shot at 3200 ISO and 1/350s. You can see more images in the Sports gallery on my website.

There is still some noise in the background of these images, but within the plane of the depth of field you can get great sharpness. These were post-processed in ACR, including white balance, noise reduction and the first pass of sharpening. I have shot white balance reference photos at several points on the court and I have put together a processing preset for this gym.
