It's silly, but East has played some national teams this year. So all is not lost.

Yep

These high schoolers get way too much pub at an early age anyway. Plus Penny might have a golf tournament that week.

Sure. The five star and the four star guys are going to get the pub anyway. But what about the zero star guys whose basketball career ends as soon as they play their last high school game? The bench warmers? The student managers? This would be a great experience for them, one that they will remember their whole lives.

But, of course, we have bylaws. And we have those stars who get enough pub as it is. Who cares about the scrubs.

Section 9. The sports season for a school shall end when the team has been eliminated from the TSSAA

tournament series or has won the state championship. The sports season shall end for a school whose team does

not enter the tournament series with the playing of the last regularly scheduled game.

This was what Brian Kelsey said on their behalf. It's a great opportunity for kids that may never have the opportunity to go see New York. Like Mark Ginnatto said, "Adults ruin everything"!

It ruled according to the bylaws. If you do not like the bylaws then work to have them changed.

Nothing good could come from teams playing after season is over. Will only deepen the problem of high school recruiting as students will transfer to school most likely to be invited to after season tournaments.
