Hitting the books for hours on end can get pretty exhausting. Fortunately, Penn State Lehigh Valley offers plenty of activities, clubs, etc. for those looking to kill time in between classes. One of those activities involves 3 simple things; a basketball, a hoop, and a bunch of your close friends…Basketball! PSULV holds a beautiful set of two, full sized, side-by-side courts located at the far left of the student parking lot.

Freshman and aspiring Astrophysics student, Yoki Salcedo, told me how he and his group of friends “ball up” on Tuesdays and Thursdays, since those are the days where they have the least amount of classes. “Tuesdays I don’t have classes, ever. I only come to play ball. Same with Thursdays”, he says.

John Sauter, Freshman student intending to study Bio, says “We don’t play everyday. I have a lot of other things I do like glee, music, and gym. But yeah, sometimes during my breaks, we’ll go out and shoot around”.

Jeff Depalma, yet another Freshman intending to double major in Security/Risk Analysis and IST, comes to school at 10AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Instead of going home, then coming back to campus at 2PM for “ball”, he “stays in school and just chills”.

I was fortunate enough to be able to capture some incredible pictures and film their games of “Knockout”. I’ve added a short video I put together and self edited amazing moments in their games. Enjoy!
