Covering the AHSAA basketball playoffs has kept me from spending as much time as usual at the club. Basketball season always seems interminable until it wraps up in a whirlwind with area, sub-region, region, and state playoff games.
So there’s no conversation here tonight, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking at a few of the things I’ve seen through my camera during the past week while sitting on the hardwood.
