Here are some pictures of my brother's travel basketball team's last game.

I think you might have a white balance issue, these look like they have a magenta tint. Did you set a CWB?

Yes I did. I used a coffee filter. I might have had an issue with cycling lights, though. Do you have any suggestions on how to get better WB?

I don't think it is cycling lights. Try using the K (Kelvin) setting and take some test shots.

+1 on this. Did you do any post processing?

Just noise reductions and a little shadow adjustment on one of them. Other than that, no.

Try both the flourescent and incandescent WB settings. One or the other usually does ok in a standard school gym.

In the last photo, the kid seems to have a set of arms growing from his hips.

Shouldn't custom white balance do better than a preset one? I think there may have been a purple light around center court, so that may be where it's coming from.

The odd color balance could reflected light. The lane appears to be painted red and there are red cushions on the wall behind the baseline.

Either that or the light bounced off their purple jerseys onto their faces.

i don't think you need an iso 3200. you would have less noise if you reduced this. i have been toying with this on my school gym sports shots, as well, and it seems that even iso 1250 does great. just way less noise.

OP was using f/2.8, his max available. If he drop his ISO to 1250, his shutter speed would have to drop to 1/160s. That's too slow for basketball.

sorry, i had lost main train of though:
i meant to add that i've been playing with the aperture, too, and it seems that the aperture doesn't have to be wide open, either, in gym light. this is just my experience in different gyms with different light. but you are absolutely correct in your assessment. thank you for the correction.
