The Section III Sectionals will be an Open Tournament
The Section III Basketball Sectional Tournament will be an open tournament for 2023. The requirement that teams win 40% of their games in class, league, or division is suspended. Every team will qualify for the sectional tournament.
It is more important that ever that teams post their game scores (and stats) as quickly as possible after a game is over. Posting your line scores and final scores on game night will update the standings in your Class, League, and Divisions. Everyone will want to log on to the website each day and begin looking a possible matchups in sectionals. Keeping your pages, results, schedules, and stats up to date each day is important. The accuracy of all information on this website is in the hands of the coaches.
It is possible that teams may "Opt Out" of sectionals. All decisions to opt out of the tournament must be communicated to your committee chairs ASAP.
This is the most exciting time of the season as the tournament approaches. Coaches: All questions about the changes in the tournament format should be directed to your committee representatives.
Good luck to all teams in these last weeks before seeding.
Today's "Tuesday Tip from the Top"
Reporting Scores and Stats on Game Night. Updates to HSSS
Reporting your game results and stats on game night moves everythinig forward for your team and for all teams. It updates standings, updates the sectional stats database and player profile pages, and posts the complete box score on that night's scoreboard.
The HSSS game reporting tools will also send a complete game report to the local media. You can set up an email list in your Coach Tools. After your line scores, official's ratings (Sect 6 BBB and Sect 3 GS), and a Game Summary Write-up (Optional), a click of a button communicates your game to all the media at once, and your post-game work is complete.
Here is the process you can complete after a game.
1. Entering your Game Results and Stats.
2. Emailing your Game Reports to Local Media.
Stop back next week for another HSSS "Tuesday Tip from the Top".
Coaches and Team Owners:
As you log on to High School Sport Stats, your Coach Tools Console will now default to 2022-2023.
An important first task in creating your 2022-2023 Roster is to Import your Roster from the Previous Year.
Importing your roster will bring all your underclassmen from last year along and up their class one year automatically. This will also ensure that their stats from last year come along on their player pages. You may then edit your roster for players not longer on the team and the new underclassmen who make the team.
Your Schedules were inputted by HSSS:
We put your schedules online in September as they were available. Coaches will have to edit changes and add or delete games to make their schedules accurate.
If you have any questions, or need any assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to your Chairmen or to High School Sport Stats by email or by phone. We will get right back to you.
