Additional Topeka Tournament Information

TOPEKA BOYS BRACKET

TOPEKA GIRLS BRACKET

As the Topeka tournament comes up just a reminder of some of the differences in the Topeka rules than C.S.A.L.

First of all the game is played in quarters not halves. Each quarter is six minutes long and there is no running clock unless a team gets ahead by more than 25 points. Also, timeouts are a bit different. Instead of four full timeouts each team will get three full and two 30 second time-out.

For the first round games, they will keep the posted times on the schedule. For the remainder of the games start time can be up to 10 minutes ahead of schedule. We will also have a minimum of five minutes for warm-up.

We will let people know on time of the pizza party once we know when our final games will be.

Both sixth grade teams and the 7-8 boys teams opened up C.S.A.L. post season play with games on Saturday. The 6th grade girls began things off with a game against Resurrection. It was a hard fought game and the girls came back in the second half but fell short at the end. They will play again Monday night at 5:30.

The 7-8 boys had both of their games on Saturday. They started against a hot shooting team from St. Joe–Ost. Hard luck at the free throw line doomed the boys in that contest. Their second game was against St. Francis they started out well and took a lead in at halftime. Foul trouble in second half hurt them and they ended up on the short end.
