Michigan Tourneys "Suspended Immediately and Indefinitely" Today

Michigan basketball tournaments "suspended immediately and indefinitely" this morning, just prior to girls' second-round (regional) finals tonight and boys' first-round (district) finals tomorrow. All other winter sports post-season tourneys suffer same fate.

MHSAA Suspends Winter Tournaments . . .

It will be interesting to see:
  • Whether the MHSAA resumes the winter post-season or opts to scrap them and not have any champions for most of the winter sports.
  • Whether we have spring sports and whether the spring season might be extended into mid to late June or played with the same post-season dates.
  • How assignors handle the present uncertainty, especially with spring sports. Their job is difficult and thankless as it is. I recently got my first softball game assignment for next month, but who knows whether the game will go on as scheduled.

Would it be considered too overly optimistic for me to continue to maintain my in-season conditioning regiment in hopes of having my recently cancelled post-season assignments reassigned at a later date?

With athletes getting involved with spring sports and halting their in-season conditioning and growing rusty in their individual and group game-mindedness, will any future teams put on the court actually be a good representation of what those teams were prior to the schedule suspension?

As it is, each team, though dreams unfulfilled, can brag that "This was the year we would have made it to the Breslin." If they are called back into the gym for a brief week or two of practice to resume the tournament in May or June or during the summer, would it resemble more a summer camp or clinic than the sharpness of the typical post-season?

Maybe better just to let them all be champions and aim for next season, perhaps. And for officials to prepare for an enriching and enabling off-season.

Kansas Jayhawks should be "asterisked" as the champions for 2019-2020 in the NCAA record books bcz they were top-ranked at the last AP poll prior to suspension / cancellation of the post-season.

Says the guy from Kansas with the username Kansas Ref.

He probably has a dog named Dorothy.

OK...in my Pete Davidson voice.

Maybe the fans in Lawrence can schedule a rumble with the fans in Spokane.
