Last Saturday the Butte College men's basketball team didn't make things easy for itself in its conference home opener with Shasta College. The Roadrunners made just enough plays to scrape by with a win. The home team was ahead 38-31 at halftime and ran that lead to 43-33 at the 16-minute mark, but Shasta rallied to cut the lead to only two points. With three minutes to go Butte's lead was only slightly better at four points, and that was cut to a mere two points again with 10 seconds left on the clock. Neither side scored again, and the Roadrunners had their narrow victory.

All shots with D700. Shots #1-3 with 80-20 f/2.8; shots #4-6 with 50 mm. f/1.8.

Comments are welcome.

1. Player #34 at 6'8" is the tallest man on the Roadrunner roster. He is from London, England. His 18 points led all players in this contest.

6. Artsy shot of basketballs. During the halftime break I passed by a cart full of practice balls and stopped long enough to take this shot. I belong to a local camera club, and I may enter this shot into the pictorial category at our next camera club competition. (Sports shots do well in the photo-journalism competition category).
