I've been a bad blogger lately. I have been shooting a variety of assignments and working on a handful of other projects, but not getting around to putting much online. Tonight I'm trying to catch up a bit.

These images are from the basketball games I shot for Portland Community College last weekend.

In the first game of the day, the women got thumped by Umpqua 105-52. To be fair, though, Umpqua is the top team in the NWAACC's South Division. Portland only dressed seven players for the game, one of whom appeared to be playing through an injury. Then, midway through the first half, two of Portland's players succumbed to ankle injuries in the span of about 30 seconds. One of those returned in the second half; the other was out for the game.

In the men's game, the Panthers fared better. They led by 10 at halftime, and by as many as 15 later in the game. Umpqua didn't give up, though, and fought to within two points. But Portland held on for a 90-85 win to improve their league record to 3-8. Umpqua fell to 1-10.
