Been awhile since I photographed HS basketball, here are some images from tonight taken with either 70-200 f/2.8L IS II or 24-70 f/2.8L II on either a 5DMIII or 1DX

The lighting is not consistent throughout the gym, so I set the shutter speed I want and let the camera's computer do the rest.

Thanks for the kind words, I like taking the wider shots that tell the whole story as well as tight shots.

They all could benefit from being cropped tighter or being shot vertical.

I'll be honest, I don't like the tight crops.

If you look at some of the greatest sports photos they're not overly tight crops. The wider the photo the more detail and I think it really helps tell the story of the game.

Great photos!

Yes, nothing wrong with a wider crop so long as it adds elements to the story the photo is trying to tell. IMO, the only one here that benefits from a wide crop is #1, since you have a defender that's well behind and has clearly given up contrasted by the subject's teammate that has a look of awe and celebration. A little cropping and #1 would be excellent. On wider stuff, try not to center the main subject so much.

Otherwise, image quality and action is nice in all of them. Nice work.

Should be even tighter :)

I like the wider shots better, btw.

A few inputs from me:
The crop ruins #1. The action and reaction from player 14 makes that shot, no reason to eliminate the environment .
From the looks of the lighting, I see nothing that is not consistent. Uneven maybe but consistent from shot to shot. It looks like parts of the white jerseys are blown out. If I shot in that gym I'd find the setting that gives proper exposure and set manual everything, but that's just me.
