ESU Men’s Basketball likes to press opponents. Their full court press opened up an unsurmountable early lead against Bloomsburg University this afternoon. ESU put the pedal to the metal and never looked back.
The full court press forced turnover after turnover, several turning into turnover points. The beginning of the first half was a flurry of white motion.
Solid offense produced quality scoring opportunities, too.
Ball handling and control made for those turnovers to be costly.
contributed to the scoring opportunities.

I am in the midst of updating my basketball portfolio in preparation for the upcoming college basketball season. You can see my updated basketball portfolio here. I cover East Stroudsburg University sports and capturing the action on the court for the men’s and women’s games is awesome! I also shoot some high school games for The Pocono Record.
These photos are from the past few years and I thoroughly enjoy the games from pre-game, to tip-off, to court action, to post-game. These athletes are amazing and always put an energetic game on the floor!
About a year-and-a-half ago, I attended the Summit Sports Photography Workshop in Denver, Colorado. It was an incredible event and I learned a lot. Here are some of the basketball photos I captured there.
ESU hosted Kutztown on Monday afternoon for a doubleheader on a beautiful day. The weather was just right for baseball and the ESU players were just right for this matchup. Solid pitching and consistent at-bats were the plan of the day. Coaches just love it when a plan comes together!
The Warriors scored 10 runs in the first game off two homeruns. RBIs resulted from getting men on base, moving them into scoring position, and then letting the bats at the plate do the work. With ducks on the pond, it looked almost easy.
Baserunning is not as easy as it appears. Pickoff attempts, stealing bases, and line drives can wreak havoc for a runner on the basepaths. But ESU won these battles, too.
An early collision at first base had some holding their breath for a moment or two. Fortunately, the play did not result in any serious injury. Play resumed with the runner on first base looking to get into scoring position.
The second game seemed just as easy for ESU even though they scored half as many runs. Consistent hitting continued and the runs kept coming.
Speed from the batter’s box to first base was also apparent in both of these games. Runners beat out a bang-bang play several times.
ESU definitely had Kutztown in its sights. Most definitely!
East Stroudsburg University won big over Millersville University in PSAC quarterfinal action on Wednesday night. The Warriors split the two regular season games against the Marauders but came up with a huge victory to advance to the PSAC Final Four. They will face Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Saturday in the semi-final. I was covering the game for The Pocono Record and the above photo was published on Thursday.
Here are some additional photos from the game at Koehler Fieldhouse.
