Recently, I shot the Big 12 Women’s Basketball Championship at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri. Each year, the Big 12 Conference gives me the choice to cover the men’s or the women’s tournament. I always choose the women’s championship because it is five fun days of athleticism and emotion. Next year, the women’s championship will be played in Dallas, Texas.
