EDC Tourney becomes an absolute ____show

Postby heimer » Wed Jan 20, 2016 11:12 am

So, in looking at schedules, it appears that the State B girls and EDC tourneys were both scheduled for the Alerus Center at the same time (the Friday and Saturday).

One tournament had to move, and the EDC moved to Fargo.............in four different gyms.

The BSA is under constructions, the Civic can't handle it, the Dome is too expensive, etc., etc. So, on Friday, North will host two games, South will host two, West Fargo will host two, and Sheyenne will host two, pretty much all at the same time.

Now, the HSAA tried this before, and got laughed out of the gym, so to speak. I can see the construction and the double-up in GF being an issue looking for an improvised solution.

However, when I asked if this was something the EDC would keep doing, the response was, "We'll see how this goes."

Hear that? It's the sound of tournament basketball getting another power flushing in the East Region. That missed school time is a real issue, I guess.

Kudos to the WDA, a real league with a real tournament. The EDC shouldn't even send teams to state this year with this mess.

I believe they also have to move games in Fargo to avoid home court advantages. It's a mess.

VCSU, Concordia, and Moorhead State show their schedules end on February 20th. May have some tournament games, but maybe play on Thursday. Send the loser bracket one place and the winners the next. What they are doing is about the dumbest thing they could come up with.

Games are at West Fargo & West Fargo Sheyenne...neither of those teams can play on their home court (neutral court for neutral advantage); Title game to each court.

So there are 3 games at each site:
West Fargo Sheyenne
BBB: West Fargo vs. Fargo South
GBB: West Fargo vs. Fargo South
GBB: Fargo Shanley vs. GF Red River

West Fargo
GBB: Wahpeton vs. Fargo Davies
BBB: WF Sheyenne vs. Devils Lake
BBB: Fargo Davies vs. GF Red River

Therefore, reasoning of West Fargo at the same site: Can't play on their home floor and have two teams left (as Baller stated); also Fargo South ended up at WF Sheyenne also because they played West Fargo in each game.

Reasoning for Fargo Davies: Well one title game is set for WF Sheyenne, and the one BBB game had to be moved to Sheyenne because of home court issues; So in the end, Fargo Davies ended up on the same site.

Its really not that confusing when the schedules are put in front of you and the rules of sites are explained.
