The 50mm f/1.8 should be good, but if you're like me you'll end up using the Tamron more often and I would have saved up to get the 85mm f/1.8 for more reach, nice portraits, and it works nicely for indoor basketball too. But of course I don't know what your subjects will be.

Hope you post some photos.

yeah I had the 85mm on my wishlist, maybe one day I had a budget and decided to spend the bulk of the mony on the 500D and the Tamron... the canon 50mm price made me just throw it in too lol

I highly recommend the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8:

Exactly! -> It's a stop faster than the Canon and outperforms it in every categories (i.e. vignetting and sharpness), except for CA which can be overcomed in Photoshop if not by the camera already (for example Nikon's camera automatically correct for lens CA in the body):
