Andy,

Welcome to the forum. A fine shot with great action and if you are a Cardinal fan, congratulations. They have a good team this year.

An Indiana Hoosier fan.
Paul

I have photographed basketball and a rangefinder would not be my tool of choice. You have done very well.

Paul - Thanks for the welcome and kind words. Louisville resident and fan, 1987 IU Grad and big fan. Go Hoosiers!

Bill - Thanks, I didn't feel like bringing my D800e and 70-200mm. The m9 was a lot more fun to have at the game. I also enjoyed the challenge of using the M9 in that environment.

stuny - I should have posted earlier but better late than never. I will try and make up for lost time.

Great shot

I've used the MP for auto racing, equestrian, running events and you have to anticipate accurately

It takes some skill to pull a shot like this off

Well done

If you didn't see on SportsCenter, Behanen (pictured above) had a spectacular dunk v DePaul just last night. I'll link the YouTube video here in a minute.

My medical school alma mater: UL

I have a degree from IU too, but in all things basketball I bleed "Blue"
