After a couple of down days to recover from an excellent first trip to Disney World with the family, I picked up a couple of days work at the newspaper.  On this day, I was assigned two conference quarterfinal games at St. Anselm College in Manchester (or is it Goffstown?  I can't really ever tell where I am).  I also had the opportunity to give the Nikon D750 a test since I had to send in a body to Nikon and they didn't have any D4s bodies available for loaners this time.  I have to say, it performed solidly considering the low light (I was shooting at 6400 ISO, 1/800" at f/2.8 and it did pretty well). 

in Game 1, the St. Anselm women's team dropped a 71-52 decision to the University of New Haven.  After a tightly contested first half, the Chargers pulled away in the second half to win comfortably.
