Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you’re past your Monday blues and onto better things for the week. The end of basketball season is slowly creeping its way towards us, and in the Modica house – it’s kind of bittersweet. We’re both so wrapped up in the team that it’s hard to remember what it’s like to have a weekend that isn’t filled with basketball or Josh on the road. My camera gets a great workout this time of the year, and I wouldn’t change that for anything. I will say, though – I’m looking forward to having a free Saturday!
This game against ODU marked UTSA’s entrance into the C-USA bonus play. They got a little bit of time off to regroup and put themselves back together in a better and more efficient version of themselves. If you were at the last ODU game, you know how much of a fight this game was going to be. As the guys walked onto the court to start the game, you could totally tell they were thinking the same thing – this game is a big one.
For most of the game, both teams were neck and neck. UTSA’s fans have come to town this season and make the convo lively – every single game, so the energy wasn’t missing for a single second. When Gio, Keaton, or Jhivvan make a shot, the band goes wild! They have a chant for each of the guys, and it’s one of the best parts of being at those games. I’m a firm believer that a great crowd gives the home team an extra bit of boost when they need it.
By the end, the guys were right there with the ODU athletes. At the last buzzer, the guys fell short by one point. Regardless, the game was epic and chaotic and amazing all at once. The guys have so much support that they’re proud to be putting their all out on the convo floor. As a photographer, that’s one of the coolest things to catch.
As you go through these, take in the intensity and grit all these guys are portraying. They’re in it to win it and it’s totally apparent to anyone paying any sort of attention. The end of the season prize is near and the dogs are out!

There you have it! The guys take off on the road to finish up their last two games of bonus play. They’ll be back in Texas next week, competing in the C-USA tournament. Stay tuned for more!
