Hello All,

As similar tournaments are going on across the US, our boys AAAA provincial championships are on right now in Hamilton, Ontario.

A JV regional final held locally last week ended like so:

Ressurection is up by 1. Rockway gets over half court and passes the ball east-west. With :08 left, a Res player intercepts the pass and goes down for the easy dunk. Crowd is going nuts.

A Rockway player violates on the throw-in, with :04 left. However, the timer was late stopping the clock. Officials properly reset the clock to :05. Res inbounds the ball and it is very quickly knocked OOB. Still :05 left. Inbounds now near a corner.

Res calls a TO. Granted. Ball inbounded, a maybe-foul occurs at :03 but was not called. Another foul (by Rockway) at :01 was called. Res shooting bonus.

Res calls a TO. Granted. Half way through the TO, it becomes known that this is an excessive TO. (The table had improperly informed the officials of how many TOs were remaining.) So, a T is called.

Res player shoots the 1-and-1. Misses the first. Now we shoot the T. Rockway player hits both! Now down by 1, with the ball. Rockway calls TO. As it turns out, Res coach tells players to "foul on purpose" while going for the ball. Rockway sets up a play and Res plays great D while the ball is being inbounded.

Finally, the inbounds pass comes, to about 4 feet above the 3-pt. line and the ball is touched by the inbounds player, then if fouled (pushed) right away. Res had 4 team fouls, hence no bonus, hence game over as the buzzer had sounded.

It was an amazing ending!!! The officials handled everything well.

Sounds great juggling ref.

I'll be in Sudbury tomorrow at Laurentian to catch the OFSAA AAA Championship game at 8:15... Two friends of mine(from Timmins) are officiating at the AAA. No word yet if they will be in the Championship game though.

I met Chris Pakula in Sudbury this weekend. He does still referee. I told him someone was asking about him, but didn't know who you were and he said he didn't know anyone called the jugglingreferee...

Frontnac defeated Central Commerce in a fantastic game.

Please tell how you knew that the Resurrection Coach told his players to foul at the end of the game?

We asked him his strategy a day after the game.

Good coaching, IMO.
