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.

Why does this response not surprise me

I find it regrettable that the TSSAA would restrict the Memphis East High school basketball team from competing in Dicks nationals basketball tournament. It is an honor for a team to qualify for a position in this tourney and it brings great visibility for basketball in the state of Tennessee and the TSSAA. The tournament is scheduled so that the athletes will miss minimal educational time.

I also find it regrettable that the TSSAA is so shortsighted in their antiquated thinking as to deny these athletes an opportunity to represent their state in a competition that will be nationally televised.

I have no ties to the Memphis East High School basketball program. I couldn't even name a single athlete on the team but I do know that these young men should be allowed to represent their school, city and state in this prestigious tournament. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many who mostly come from underprivileged backgrounds. Many of these young men will never again get the opportunity to participate in something they would be able to tell to their grandkids.

I ask that the TSSAA reconsider their decision to deny these young men the opportunity to add something positive to their lives.

Awesome letter, wonderful support.We could use more of us that are REALLY proactive,instead of talking loud and saying NOTHING!!! My I add that I felt during reading, that the key word should have been irregrettable/unregrettable.....Those may NOT be words and I'm NOT the best with English or Phrases....it's just my opinion

RE: TSSAA screwed over East
There is a post season basketball game in Knoxville

They had to pay the Tssaa $1,000 to have it

It's all about the money

Tssaa would get no money from the ny games
