GU Men's Basketball v BYU

March 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Zags took on the BYU Cougars Saturday night for their final home game of the season. Seniors Byron Wesley, Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr. were honored before and after the game to celebrate their final game in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Unfortunately it was not the game the seniors were hoping for. It was a close game from start to finish, with a tie game going into the half. BYU ended up pulling away and holding onto that lead to beat the Zags 73-70, to give the Zags their only home loss of the season.

This was one of the most photogenic games of the year - it was the first real challenge the Zags had at home and it showed throughout a very physical game. I also had a remote camera on the backboard for the first time ever. It did not produce any spectacular images, but I learned how I can adjust that for the next season.

Here are my shots from the game:
