James: Looks like you captured the feel of the game. #2 is a nice action shot. Too bad the defender had to be in the shot to ruin a perfectly nice portrait. Colors look nice! Not a lot of action in these shots but all in all a good days work.

Thanks for the feedback Ben! I always wonder if I should try to include the defenders to show context to the photo, or try to isolate the player? When a player is too isolated can it be hard to tell they were even playing a real game? What is the theory on this?

Nice exposure and white balance. #3 is a little less contrasty than the others. My fav is #4.

Get the defenders unless there is a need to isolate the player. Someone may want to run a story on just that player...

As for your shots, they look like they are slightly underexposed. Try bumping them up a little bit.

Yes, I should be happy with the lighting in this gym. But it still seems so dark to me

Thanks for the feedback. I'll take a look at the exposure. Just a half stop or so?
