  • Seeding is a must

    I attended the 38th District draw Thursday at the Harrison County High School cafeteria.  I find this draw and the region draw very fascinating for several reasons.  I will attempt to explain that and why I think that all districts should seed for boys’ and girls’ programs.
    First, I want to remind you that my cousin was the IHSAA Commissioner when Indiana took the high school basketball to classes and thus ruined the second best high school basketball tournament in the country.
