    Any delay is basically going to assure they are no longer peaking. Momentum and rhythm are going to be completely disrupted if they ever get to play.

    It would be the same for every team, they'd all be "Off their game" at least a little bit.

    That said, a lot of these kids would be moving on to AAU ball in a couple of weeks.

    I understand everyone's disappointment. But isn't better to be safe than sorry? Ultimately, nothing is more important than the safety and welfare of the players, coaches, officials and fans. If the major, professional sports feel it's prudent to shut down, it's not crazy to think that high schools should shut down as well.

    I don't know, so I'm going to ask...how are the AAU leagues going to operate during all of this? I can't imagine it's going to be business as usual.

    And, given the option...I can't imagine any kid passing on an opportunity to play for a state championship, just to play an extra week of AAU. Am I wrong?

    It's a snowball effect. Once one event, tournament, or convention is cancelled it makes it easier for others to follow suit. And no one wants to be "that person" who fails to act and it results in a death.

    It's a shame, but it's basketball.

    I imagine you are correct. With everything else in the country being shut down I get it though. You don't want to be the only tournament in the country that goes on as scheduled just to make the money from it.

    And then people get infected from said tournament.

    I’m pretty sure the SEC has put a stop to all recruiting and has canceled coaching visits until further notice.

    Right. I meant to add that as well but lost my train of thought.

    This. Exactly. Amazing how so many people still don't feel this way after everything that's happened in the last week.

    Congratulations to the Ashland on looking like it has finished the season undefeated at 33-0. I went back as far as the 1997-98 season looking for the last undefeated team was wondering if anyone knew the last undefeated team in Kentucky.

    IMO, a sad state of affairs with others making decisions for us.
    This is now setting a precedent that will be easier to repeat off in the future.

    Maybe they could hold it at GRC, there must be no threat of Corona there - they sold out Tuesday night.
    I hope no one from Harrison Co. Wal-Mart was in attendance.

    It could quite possibly be Ashland in 1928. Undefeated doesn't happen very often.

    1948 Brewers, they were 36-0.
