I was in Cleveland photographing the Sweet 16 and the Elite 8 March Madness Rounds for USA Today. This was my 3rd basketball game I covered all season. I am not much of a fan shooting basketball. But when it’s crunch time and the game is on the line, I love the hustle and determination players put in to try to win the game and move onto the next round.
Notre Dame was giving Kentucky a run for their money, but a foul in the final seconds of the game sent Kentucky to the line to shoot two baskets putting them ahead 68-66.
Notre Dame attempted to take a shot in the last two seconds of the game, but the shot came up short. Kentucky won and celebrated keeping their season a perfect 38-0 and moving onto the Final Four.
