2013 CHSAA 5A Great 8

So, after shooting the Oregon and Colorado basketball game in Boulder the night before, I headed to the Denver Coliseum to photograph the Great 8 round for the Boys 5A CHSAA tournament.  I was sick as a dog, did not feel like being there, but really wanted to shoot the game.  I really liked the Coliseum.  It had great ambient light, but I still used two strobes.  Of the 4 games, all were close games, one went into double overtime, and the 5 seed Legend High School took out favorite Fairview.  It was a fun night.  Too much to recap, so here are photos from all 4 games.
