This week Carlos, Matt and I traveled up to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. Texas Tech returned to the NCAA tournament for a second straight season as the No. 3 seed, facing off against No. 14 Northern Kentucky. With each first/second round site hosting eight teams, there was plenty of basketball to watch and photograph.
Before the game against Northern Kentucky
On the day before game day, there were practice and interview sessions to shoot at the arena. All eight teams held public practices allowing fans to watch from the stands.
Before the game, fans gathered at the team hotel to send the players off to the BOK Center. Matt and I rushed to the hotel and back to catch some quick photos and video. Here’s the video I quickly knocked out before the game began.

Finally, the full slideshow of the first round game against Northern Kentucky can be found on A-J’s website. While you’re at it, check out my post from the second-round game against Buffalo. And the photos from the rest of the season.
