Wisconsin's Premier Youth Basketball League

 

* It is essential for all scores to be reported IMMEDIATELY for proper planning of the year end Championship Tournament.  For instance, NO SCORE WILL BE ACCEPTED after Monday, Feb 27th as I will be calculating seedings on that day.

1) Here is some additional information on the year end tournament.

  • 6 of the 20 divisions will play on March 5th (8A, 8B+, 8C, 7A, 7B+, 5B+).  All the rest will play the following week.
  • All teams make the tournament. 
  • It will be seeded from #1 to #20 (or #16 or #18, depending on how many teams in your division).
  • Seedings are based upon your regular season record (with a few rare adjustments).
  • It is a one day tournament, with a two game guarantee.
  • The winners of the first round games move on to the Championship side of the bracket while the losing teams head to the Consolation side.  From there, ANY LOSS and you are eliminated. 
  • Awards will be given to the Champion, Runner Up, and to the Consolation Champion.

2)  We have a large slate of games scheduled for Feb 26th that will most certainly effect where teams are seeded.  I will need one day to consolidate everything, so on Tuesday, Feb 28th, I will post the seedings & brackets for the March 5th tournament.  Your game times will be on the bracket.  Please understand my decision on seedings is FINAL as they will be sent to the Printer immediately on Tuesday for the quick turnaround.

 

3)Here is a preliminary look at how I will adjust the divisions for the Year End Championship Tournaments (I have looked at 6th, 7th, & 8th grades).  Please understand there are many games still to play, but I wanted to give a sneak peak into my thinking.  Also note in 7th grade, Brown Deer & Shorewood switched divisions in 7B/7C and Tosa West/IKE switched in 7A/7B+.  As such, all of these teams will not get charged with the wins or losses of the switching team. For example the current 7A standings show Tosa West at 1-11, but they will NOT be the team that gets dropped down (they are very good, you will see!).  Conversely, IKE's 10-0 record in 7B+ is not theirs and they are staying put.  Instead, it is a virtual certainty that Waukesha South moves up to 7A.

  • 8A possible 1 team moving down (Fondy?  Whitnall?)
  • 8B+ possible 1 moving up, 2 will drop to 8B
  • 8B.  Germantown & Slinger moving up to 8B+ and 2 dropping to 8C
  • 8C.  The top 2 teams will be moving up
  • 7A.  1 team will drop to 7B+
  • 7B+  1 team moving up and 1 dropping to 7B
  • 7B.  1 team moving up to 7B+
  • 7C.  No changes.
  • 6A.  No changes as of now.
  • 6B+  1 team will drop to 6B
  • 6B.  Tosa East is rising to 6B+, 3 will drop to 6C
  • 6C.  3 will rise to 6B.
  • 5A. 
  • 5B+  I am moving up WAUK NORTH, ARROWHEAD, NB WEST
  • 5B I am moving up SUSSEX and the winner of Greendale vs Westosha
  • 5C  I am moving up the top 2 teams
  • 4A
  • 4B+ I am moving up ARROWHEAD & GRAFTON
  • 4B.  I am moving up WATERTOWN & HOMESTEAD
  • 4C  I am moving up the top 3 teams

Basketball Thoughts & Observations

Tryout Season

A Red Herring: An expression referring to a tactic of diverting attention away from an item of significance.

 

We had a dinner party scheduled for Saturday night, so imagine my surprise when Mrs. Basketball Coach absolved me of household chores and suggested I play a round of golf during the afternoon.  Pitching in domestically or using my pitching wedge is not a tough choice.  I felt like Ferris Buehler, only with a permission slip.

 

Fast forward several hours…………post golf, upon entering the house, it was sensory overload; rock music coupled with laptops and lasagna.  I had entered a twilight zone where Iron Maiden met Iron Chef.  “Ok, I understand the mood music, the lasagna, pot of sauce on the stove, and the smell of freshly baked bread, but what’s up with the three laptops tightly arrayed on the counter?” 

 

“Oh, those, Mrs. Coach said.  “With the dawning of a new season, I’m going to hold tryouts as well.”  Huh?  {methinks she may be carrying the Mrs. Coach blog moniker a bit too far; nonetheless, I’ll bite}, what do you have in mind?

 

“Well, I want to be inclusive and give everyone a fair shot.  I want to design the tryout process to identify the top selections.  I’ll look at a mix of big and small, and certainly will not exclude anyone based upon color.  The final cuts will be hard, so I think I need to surround myself with a few unbiased evaluators to help sort through the B/S.  Towards that end, I’ve assembled my team and we’re putting together a list of names for next Saturday.”

 

The astute reader will recognize when I’ve been had.  I hadn’t reached that stage of reality yet.  I was still in my pre-dinner food sampling mode (hmmmm, come to think of it, why wasn’t I getting yelled at?).  Back to reality.  A player list?  Next Saturday?  I quickly moved to the laptop side of the counter to see what this tryout talk was all about.

The player list was instantly recognizable.  Boucher, Darrow, Wilde, Heiser, Uptown, and Lexus.  An asterisk was next to International Autos. Am I to assume that is going to be the darling of tryouts and the potential #1 draft pick?  Of course, we have had new car talks in the household, but I assumed our family contribution to stimulating the economy was on hold until our trees and flowers bloomed next year.  Mrs. Coach seems to be altering the timeline significantly.

 

“While I’m shopping with Sally and Sherry next Saturday, we’re going to test drive a few cars”.

 

 

Shouldn’t I be there to help?  “I figured you’d be watching the World Series”.  No, that’s done; Chicago won. “Well, then enjoy the Packer game”.  No, they play Sunday.  “How about sneaking in a last round of golf with Glenn?”

 

There it was again, the please go golfing suggestion.  It’s a win-win proposition as she promised to hold a second round of tryouts with me in attendance.  But the world is changing.  It’s certainly a new season in many ways!
