South Point Thanksgiving Shootout

I almost forgot about this one. When I was in Las Vegas during Thanksgiving week. I went to the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout at the South Point Casino. It is a woman college basketball tournament and it is something I do every year:

Maryland women getting ready
Maryland's Brionna Jones scoring a basket
Arizona St's Sabrina Haines with the ball
Maryland's Shatori Walker-Kimbrough with the ball
Arizona St huddling 
 ASU's Kesley Moos launching a three
Maryland's outstanding Head Coach Brenda Frese
Even though Arizona St. got boatraced by Maryland their players and Head Coach were nice:

Kelly Moos talking to the press
ASU Head Coach Charli-Turner Thorne

I didn't take many photos of the St.John's/Virginia game but here are the few I took:

Virginia's Lisa Jablonowski going up for two

Virginia's Lisa Jablonowski with the ball
St.John's head Coach Joe Tartamella hoping his team can win and they did
The South Point Shootout is always something that I look forward to every year. It is a great time for a great price.


  1. Patrick, this is such a great post! As a former student-athlete myself, I always appreciate the athleticism and dedication exhibited by all student-athletes especially at the college level. Thanks for sharing and for linking up On the Edge.


  2. It sounds like a really cool thing to go watch! Basketball's not very big here but we did a few sessions of it in gym back at school, inbetween the endless netball and rounders. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing over at Friday Frivolity!

  3. Seems like you have had quite a lot of fun! Great pics, reminds me of my school days - Menaka Bharathi Bloggers Pit Stop Crew
