I had assignments from The Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin to cover BYU-Hawaii taking on Cal Poly-Pomona this past Monday in the final round of NCAA Division II Regional Tournament. It was held at Carver Gym at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. This was an exciting game to cover — in the final minute, BYU-H had three chances to score, all of which would have tied the game — they could not make it happen.

Some of my favorites below, and more of my photos of the BYU-Hawaii v. Cal Poly-Pomona game.
