Hooked on the 'horns.

Reno's Jeremy Lin, on assignment from the Golden State Warriors.
Lin is averaging 19.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists since joining the 'horns. 

I love the D-League. Seriously. It's really enjoyable basketball. Never thought I'd say that when David Kahn brought the team to town in 2008 but damn it, I'm hooked. I even like the arena. It's a fun place to shoot. I've lit it a few times but usually make do with the available light, which—depending on the part of the court—is either incredibly bright or terribly dark. I also have unusually free access to the catwalks which makes for some unique overhead angles.

Last weekend, Nancy Lieberman's Texas Legends were in Reno. I shot both games. Both Bighorns wins. Saturday night was Susan G. Komen for the Cure night so some of the players donned pink headbands and bracelets. Here's a few of my favorite images from the game:

Coach Muss sporting a pink tie, shirt and lapel pin. Also, yelling.

Mo Charlo's pink 'horns headband.

My favorite fan. She was really excited about Gelato Lotto.

Lin, again.


Nancy's kicks.

Little 'horns.

Had a decent crowd Saturday night, wanted to give some sense of place.
