Shirts tucked in, pants pulled up! T-shirts worn under the uniform jersey must match the color of the uniform jersey.
20 point lead- pull the press off! Blow outs should be avoided!
Please note the following rule change: The team making any throw in after a foul, made basket or after any violation IS IN CONTROL OF THE BALL. Prior to this change, no team or player control existed during a throw in. Therefore, fouls committed by the team making the throw in during the throw in will be treated as team control fouls. No shots will be awarded.
Any questions, give Ed a call. Have a great season!
