This photo comes from a remote set up next to the basket during a Boston College-Pacific NCAA first-round game. Whenever we cover basketball, I set up anywhere from seven to nine remotes. The low angle shows how high players can leap. It's an unusual perspective. You get part of the scoreboard and the structure of the arena, which looks a little like a spaceship.
