Officials for Regional Tournaments... Trading Regions


Plato

Recommended Posts

There was a comment in another thread asking about officials trading regions for the tournament. If I remember right from last year it was a KHSAA decision and was mapped out for 3 years as to who would trade with who.

Last year the 10th region had 9th region officials. There was one crew that was pretty good (Pouncy was on that one). But one crew really struggled with the low point being when they screwed up the fouls and let Prewitt back in the game after fouling out. That's right... he finished the game with five fouls. This was just one of a comedy of errors.

I don't like the trading policy... but that is mainly because I believe the BBA consistently has the best set of referees and having them during the season means we won't have them for the games that really matter.

 

Thoughts?

This year, I have heard that the 10th will have the 16th region officials.

 

This is correct and the 11th will get officials from the 9th.

 

As a former official who worked regional tournaments both in and out of region, I actually liked going out a little better. Only bad thing about going out was the drive. My mileage check was more than my game check (which is a totally different thread topic).

Thanks I knew you would know.

I stand corrected. A good buddy of mine in northern Kentucky just informed me that the 9th region officials will go to the 8th and the 11th region will get the 7th.

Having officials moving out is the only way to do it. This eliminates any bias that some officials may have for or against a coach or school. The BBA is far and away the best association so those schools who have them on a regular basis reap the benefits night in and night out.

Seems like the Prewitt situation would be more of an official scorer error than the crew on the floor. No??

 

It was handled totally wrong by the crew. But the whole game was poorly officiated and the next night was no better. I dont remember the tall guy's name but he made some strange calls.

Is this same Pouncy that called the Championship game last year? If so even the good ones miss calls (Townsends three that was called a two)
