Chicago - Not So Sweet

March 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I had the opportunity to go to Chicago to cover the Gonzaga men's basketball team in the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Gonzaga, the last mid-major in the tournament, took on Syracuse in the Sweet 16. The game didn't kick off until 8:40pm local time, so I took some of the afternoon to take some photos around the loop, an area of Chicago that I happened to be staying in:

After spending a short afternoon taking street photos, I made my way to the United Center to prepare for the Zags' game. The United Center, home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks, was overwhelming at first: It seats 20,000 fans, opposed to McCarthey's 6,000, and, photographically, wasn't as well lit as I had hoped it would be. Unfortunately it appeared the Zags were a little overwhelmed as well. They had trouble penetrating Syracuse's zone and couldn't pull out a win between the turnovers and rebounds they gave up. 

Here are my photos from the game:
