Elite Eight

Missouri’s dream basketball season has come to a close. It was a phenomenal turnaround this year. In one year they went from shambles to success. I can remember thinking last year how I couldn’t wait for the season to be over. I felt embarrassed scouting out the police department waiting for the team to finish making statements following a bar fight. This year was different. I was hooked. Every weekend I wanted more and more. They had class. These guys were such a pleasure to watch and photograph. They constantly reminded me why I love to photograph competitive sports.
