Gallup Invite Tournament - Day 1

School is not even in session yet, and the games have begun... Yes, it is basketball season on the reservation, where the kids, and the fans, take the game very seriously. Today was the start of the Gallup Invitational boys basketball tournament, and I had the main event to cover. The house was packed and the ticket office was turning people away. Unfortunately Window Rock had an off night, putting up a lot of shots that just wouldn't quite go into the bucket.
