2012 NCAA Basketball Arizona State at Colorado

I took Saturday afternoon away from the Arvada Hockey Association tournament to photograph the Arizona State Wildcats take on the Colorado Buffaloes.  As coach Tad Boyle called it, Pac-12 Football.  I have never seen a more physical game, and I have played in games that have broken out in fist fights.

There is not much I can say that was positive from this game, Freshman Josh Scott was knocked out by an elbow right in front of me, and I got a good cheerleader shot, and that is about all I took away from this game.  So, enjoy the photos.

ASU won the game, and I began wondering if the Buffs would have a chance in the Pac-12 tournament if the refs allowed play like this to go on.  All these images are for MEDIA USE ONLY and can be purchased through Cal Sport Media
