Mel Thomas

15 February 2005  UConns Mel Thomas (25) steals the ball from Providences Allie Gard (22) during #6/#8 UConns 84-58 Big East win over Providence at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford CT.

At times I put up photos of some of the athlete’s I have shot.  This is Mel Thomas a former UConn women’s basketball player, who is one of my favorite players and people. 

30 November 2006 UConn co-captain Mel Thomas (25) is all jacked up after hitting a back breaking three late in the game against Purdue.  #7 UConn downed #9 Purdue 66-55 at the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion on the University of Connecticut Campus in Storrs CT.

Mel is the epitome of UConn basketball she was a good three point shooter, deadly from the charity stripe, a tenacious defender and all out hustle.  If you ever saw Thomas on the court, either in person or TV, you know of what I speak.

These photo’s show Mel at her finest.  By the way look for Mel’s book hopefully around the holiday’s it’s tentatively titled “Heart of a Husky”.  She also starts her pro career this weekend playing in Ireland.
