Great games this week. Looks like we kept pretty close to the schedule, which is great. There was one crazy game yesterday in Div. 1 (Lomas/Patrick Chewing), where (if the score is correct) the score was 172-142. I know the 172 isn’t a record, and neither is the combined score of 314, but it’s way up there. The highest score record is 200 (Team Lummerland – 2007), and the combined score record is 329, recorded in the same game.
No real issues with the games, but please try your best to manage the last minute of a close game. This applies to both team captains and monitors. Please keep in mind the 5 second rule, and monitors, please ensure you stop the clock precisely including on out of bounds after a basket if the ball isn’t inbounded quickly. These few seconds are important for the team that is behind. Overall, no real issues here. Monitors and captains are doing a terrific job so far.
One reminder – please sub in your defensive half only, and only when you have possession when you are bringing up the ball after a made basket or a rebound. The onus is on the team wanting to sub to slow the game down to allow a good substitution where there is no advantage gained from the substitution. Teams may also sub on a dead ball.
Have a great week and see you next Sunday. Biraj
