This all basketball edition of Shots of the Week comes after a disappointing end to the men's and women's seasons during the Southland Conference Tournament last week in Katy, Texas. The men didn't make it past the first round and the women were knocked out in the second round by Lamar. This year we really wanted to push more online content so for every game I produced stills, galleries and video to supplement our print edition. It was more work than i originally thought and required some adapting but I learned alot from the experience overall. Well, it's spring break so I'm going to go back to thinking about upcoming projects and relaxing before getting back to the daily grind next week.
