  1. Tough break for the Scientologists not getting to play in front of their SoCal fanbase.
  2. ESPNU was showing old McDonald's AA Game Dunk and Three-Point contests. 1995 was pretty loaded with Vince Carter winning the dunk contest over Paul Pierce and Garnett and Marbury sightings as well. This was also a mini-golden age for MA basketball, with Wayne Turner and Randell Jackson both playing in the game, following on Chris Herren's appearance the previous year.
  3. Page isn't loading for me. How many of those wins against power states are Maryland School for the Deaf?
  4. America's new sporting icon? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mason_Cox

  7. I like soccer and I don't mind Mexico, but put the two together and I will hate the fuck out of it.
  8. Japan still has a sumo tournament going on but without any spectators:
  9. KeystoneStateBaller will put Bethlehem Catholic on the national map! Illinois limiting attendance to 60 fans per school; https://www.ihsa.org/News-Media/Announcements/ihsa-announces-tournament-updates-related-to-covid-19 VA limiting to immediate family members Friday and Saturday: https://www.roanoke.com/sports/high_schools/vhsl-restricting-attendance-to-immediate-family-for-friday-saturday-state/article_5fafcc83-7e8e-5cec-9a38-9310a93901fd.html
  10. Maryland finally caved and closed their state basketball tournaments to fans, no media allowed either: https://www.mpssaa.org/boys--girls-state-basketball-tournaments-contingency-plan-announced/ Virginia finals at VCU in Richmond still allowing spectators as normal despite VCU banning campus events with more than 100 people.
  11. I was saying that Phillipsburg is more convenient to Bethlehem than it is to where most of the NJ population live now. Because saussmann had invited the population of NJ to Bethlehem in the previous post.
  12. Rutgers coronavirus announcement: No NJSIAA basketball finals on campus, games moved to Phillipsburg Mt. Lebanon says it won’t play PIAA tournament game vs. Eastern Pa. team because of coronavirus MIAA D4 girls’ and D3 boys’ basketball semifinals at Worcester State postponed The Jersey people will be closer to their state's basketball finals if they do move to Bethlehem.
  13. Hundreds of students swarm CIAC offices in protest after Connecticut high school sports tournaments cancelled amid coronavirus concerns
  14. Delaware moving their state basketball tournament after the University of Delaware decided not to allow spectators: https://www.doe.k12.de.us/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&DomainID=572&ModuleInstanceID=10696&ViewID=6446EE88-D30C-497E-9316-3F8874B3E108&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=24262&PageID=3949
  15. I saw that Fordham said they would still be willing to host the State Federation championships but wouldn't allow any fans. Ohio restricting attendance to a limited number of family members: https://www.ohsaa.org/news-media/articles/ohsaa-announces-tournament-details-following-governors-recommendation
  16. Overreaction or ahead of the curve? http://ciacsports.com/site/?p=14215 A few schools in PA declining to host basketball tournament games: https://www.inquirer.com/high-school-sports/piaa-postponed-games-coronavirus-oxford-coatesville-west-chester-rustin-unionville-lower-merion-20200310.html VA issued a statement discouraging teams from pre and postgame handshakes in basketball games this week, I wonder if we will also see more elbows and less hand-checking 😁
  17. Malvern Prep from the Philly area just pulled out of the Alhambra tournament, where they were supposed to play Gonzaga in the first round. School has cancelled all travel. Several schools in that area with students that may have been exposed to coronavirus have closed for at least a day for "deep cleaning".
  18. Meanwhile Maryland state playoff game gets called off the old-fashioned way: https://www.delmarvanow.com/story/sports/2020/03/09/crisfield-boys-basketball-opts-forfeit-after-chaotic-quarterfinal/4998762002/ In VA we had a state quarterfinal game with a 136-99 score: https://www.newsleader.com/story/sports/high-school/2020/03/07/basketball-stuarts-draft-john-marshall-vhsl-class-2-state-tournament/4978464002/
  19. Going with a classic for Super Tuesday, which counts as a gameday in the DMV:
  20. I thought the reduction in divisions was contingent on the statewide tournament passing. Was hard to tell what changes were based on the statewide tournament and what changes were going to happen anyway. Got a link? The few competitive hockey teams in Central/Western Mass have been playing D1 with the EMass schools for years. Football can do the same. It is a small number of games and they are not on school nights. Springfield Central already schedules EMass teams in the regular season. It's absurd for schools like Central or St. John's to be playing for state championships against school
  21. Yeah, I see lots of worrying about certain aspects of the MaxPreps rating formula, but the big question is who will be in charge of confirming that all the scores are correct? Anyway, I still think the new format is good for football, since it reduces the number of divisions and ends the ridiculous situation of D1 and D2 being EMass only, but bad for other sports.
  22. The statewide tournament proposal passed by a 193-140 vote: https://www.gazettenet.com/MIAA-approves-move-to-statewide-tournament-for-2021-season-32985157
  23. Vergil Fletcher of Collinsville IL--792 wins, two state championships back when it was 800 teams competing in one class, and one of the pioneers of the zone press.
