Season's Top 40

March 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Going into the NCAA Tournament I thought I would compile some of my favorite images from the regular season of men's basketball. I'll be heading to Seattle this week to cover the Bulldogs' journey through the NCAA tournament and will try to share a behind-the-scenes look while I am there.

Over the course of this season I photographed 13 different games and took (an estimated) 15,000 photos. Here are my favorite 40. I hope you enjoy them:
