Playing for keeps
Mark M. Hancock / © The Dallas Morning News
L.D. Bell senior Emily Anthony (No. 12, bottom) tries to shovel the ball to a teammate while South Grand Prairie senior Marissa Coop (No. 14, top) dives for the ball during a girls basketball game in Coppell. South Grand Prairie won the game and remained in the title chase after a successful appeal to overturn six forfeit games.
I still like this shot even though it's a few years old. I like the way all the lines make a circle leading back to the ball, which is also a circle. It also shows the sacrifice the players are willing to make to win the game. It's obvious the girl on the bottom will be in pain momentarily, yet she's still trying to help teammates.
