Awe...some Mondays - Lady Hoops

High school basket ball season is drawing to a close and state tournaments will be starting in the next couple of weeks. I took the opportunity to go to a local contest Friday night. I got there in time to capture a few images of the girls contest.

The girls can be just a competitive as their male counterparts, they just don't play as close to the rim as the guys.

There are usually no easy baskets in the girls game.

Sometimes it takes a little contact to get an open shot.

  2. You are right the girls do play just as hard as the boys do, we used to go and watch all of the high school games and were never disappointed.

    2. The cost depends on the school and the event. In the SF Bay Area high school sporting events are sometimes not cheap. The funny thing is up until my kiddos were 18, I could take them and myself to a Cal women's basketball (The Bears are usually a NCAA tournament team) for like $12 total on weekends. We went to the game against UCLA on New Year's Eve, it was a 11am start and it was a buck for everyone to get in. Not a bad price for a match-up of two Top-25 teams.

    3. Seniors, 65 & older, can get a free all sports pass that admits them to all home games in all sports for both high schools. It's the best deal in town.

    1. When it comes to men's pro basketball, I think the court should be 6 feet wider, 10 longer, the basket 6" taller and an additional line for the 4-point shot.
