Week in Pictures: Creighton enters March Madness, sandhill cranes migrate

Creighton enters into March Madness, sandhill cranes stop along the Platte River as they migrate north and the Nebraska boys and girls all-state basketball teams do the Harlem shake  in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: March 18-24, 2013.

The winningest group in Bluejay history chugs toward Philly, where rugged Cincinnati and mighty Duke stand in the way of the elusive Sweet 16 berth. No matter the outcome, the past two seasons have Creighton positioned to leave mid-major status behind. And non of it would have happened without a little luck. From left are Jahenns Manigat, Grant Gibbs, Austin Chatman, Gregory Echenique and Doug McDermott. ALYSSA SCHUKAR/THE WORLD-HERALD

About Alyssa Schukar

I have been a staff photojournalist at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2008. I'm from Lincoln and am a 2006 graduate of the College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Previously, I worked as an assistant at Malone and Co., a commercial photography studio in Omaha. My favorite pictures are those that give insight on the life of an individual or family because I understand the world better through the experiences of the people I meet. It's always humbling to be allowed such intimate access. My most challenging assignments come in many forms. Funerals, especially those of soldiers, always are emotionally draining, but I try to approach people with respect and dignity. In my time at the paper, I have covered a wide variety of assignments, including the Nebraska and Iowa National Guard's deployments in Afghanistan, Husker football at home and away, portraits of wigs big and small, rodeo queen competitions and intimate views of everyday life and love.
