It's that time - Win and Stay In Lose and Go Home
This year's schedule has four rounds to be played in nine days. In the past, it would usually take two weeks to play four rounds. Teams are going to have a lot of stamina and mental fortitude to play this type of schedule and with the added pressure to win to stay in or lose and go home.
The girls open the state tournament on Friday, and the guys follow on Saturday night. If both teams from the same school have made the tournament, the school is allowed to set a home doubleheader, and both schools have to agree. Here is the schedule for our local teams that made it to the state basketball tournament.
