My setup is one flash in each corner on one side of the gym. I'm still getting ghosting and tonight I'm going to try 2 speedlights in each corner. CC welcomed and any suggestions to improve. Thanks!
Most shots are f/3.5 to f/4, iso 1000, 1/200 5DMark3 and 70-200 f/2.8

Are you bouncing the flashes? It does not appear to me that the light is reaching the basket area. In shot number 1, I can see the shadow on the hoop in the background, but I see no light hitting the players.

Carl,
I have them mounted on super clamps on the second level. The flashes are pointed toward the top of the key and tilted back about 20*, not really bouncing them or direct flash.

This is how I have them tilted back. Do you think they should be facing more towards the basket?

Unless you are getting a difference of 2.5+ stops in ambient vs strobe, you'll get ghosting. Strobist will give you all you need on positioning.
