7th Annual Meadowdale Basketball Alumni Tournament
Due to the strange number of teams (9), the tournament will begin in pool play format. To honor the tradition of this event as a Meadowdale Alumni tournament, all 3 Meadowdale teams will compete against each other in Pool A. For travel/game time purposes, Edmonds-Woodway and Lynnwood were put in a pool together so they could play an early game. Teams were filled in from there.
When pool play is complete, the 3 winners of the pools will advance to the final 3. Of those 3, the team with the best record (then point differential if records are the same) will earn the #1 seed and have a bye into the Championship. Please arrive at least 20 minutes before your scheduled game time to check in, get your jersey, etc. If you did not register/pay online, you will need to fill out a waiver before being allowed to participate.
Full rules will be available and posted in the gym on Wednesday. But here are the sparknotes: Games are two 10 minute halves. The last minute of the first half, and the last two minutes of the second half will be stopped clock. When stopped clock is in effect, both teams will be in single bonus (1+1) regardless of how many fouls they've committed. It is more efficient to do it this way than to have refs reporting fouls to the table throughout the game while the clock is running. During running clock, shooting fouls are 1 shot for 2 points. During stopped clock, normal 2 shots. During running clock, "And-1's" are automatic 3 points. During running clock, the FT will be shot.
