Higher Seeds to Host BKB Tourneys through District Semi’s; Boys Tournaments Won’t Include The Convo

Presented by McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

An official with the Southeast District Athletic Board has confirmed that no neutral sites will be used for girls and boys tournament basketball until the district championship games.

Southeast District Athletic Board member Mark Rose confirmed to Litter Media’s Mike Smith on Tuesday, that girls and boys sectional tournament basketball games will be hosted by the higher seeded teams in the sectional through district semis.

This will limit the number of teams at any one game site to only two teams, much like what was done during last fall’s volleyball tournament matches to limit the number of participants and fans to the COVID-19 virus.

Rose says the district is seeking neutral sites for the various district basketball championship games and said the district board has ruled-out the used of the Ohio University Convocation Center.

State guidelines limit the number of fans and sporting events to 15% of a gymnasiums’ seating capacity or a maximum of 300 people.

Girls tournament seeds will be released Sunday, January 31st with the boys on the following Sunday.
