For the second consecutive year, I have the privilege of photographing a tournament for the Great Midwest Athletic Conference in NCAA Division II. This weekend my journey takes me to North Canton, Ohio to the campus of Walsh University as the host Cavaliers welcome the University of Findlay, Hillsdale College, and Cedarville University.
March Madness is in full swing in Northeast Ohio as Cedarville upset Hillsdale to punch their ticket into the G-MAC Tournament Championship on Saturday afternoon. Walsh handled its business and survived a threat from Findlay to fill out the other side of the bracket for Saturday's championship contest. The winner of the tournament championship receives an automatic qualifying bid into the NCAA Midwest Regional. The tournament selection show takes place Sunday, March 6 at 10:30 PM.
Below are some of the best moments from the first day of tournament competition.
