Just like football

"Timpview's Eli Robison (44) shares a moment with friend Gabe Davids after defeating Mountain Crest, 55-43, in the UHSAA 4A men's basketball state championship at the Dee Events Center on the campus of Weber St., Saturday, March 6, 2010. Robison scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead Timpview to their sixth boys basketball title and first since 2003."

That was the chant - just like football - as Timpview won yet another championship this school year.

I've been in sort of a slump. No real idea why. Maybe it was my recent shoulder injury. Whatever the reason, things are back on the up swing.

Last week, I traveled up to Ogden to cover the conclusion of the high school men's basketball championship.

Since living in Utah I haven't made it that far north - it was a nice change of pace.

The scenery change I think it helped with my rut, not to mention, I was surrounded by a bunch of good friends, shooters at the game that helped lift my spirits.

The action was OK, nothing amazing or any plays that really stood out aside from a couple big points and diving for loose balls.

As for the celebration, I liked a couple of frames, so I've included them above.

I think my favorites are the non-traditional jubes. There is something about the quieter moments that show their joy that make them different to me. Mostly the post seniors praying (since religion is so prominent out here) and the post game hug.

6 is my favorite. I just like the two dudes sharing their moment while everyone else is sharing but from outside the hug.

I like 3 and 7 the best. I feel your pain man...I broke my wrist snowboarding last week and I've had to shoot one-handed - It's rough.
