Competitive balance seems to be working ....

Looks to have leveled the playing field a bit.
D4 girls will have a public school winner.
D4 boys will most likely have a private. (Cornerstone)

D3 girls should be public (Versailles)
D3 boys should be public (Deer Park)

D2 girls should be private
D2 boys should be public

D1 girls will be public
D1 boys should be private (Moeller)

3 privates out of 16 teams at state girls tourney
6 privates out of 16 boys teams at state (guess)

Tournament officiating and coaching.

I've been to multiple tournament games this year and so far I've seen good officiating and good coaching.
That said I did have a couple minor head scratchers yesterday.

In Princeton - Lakota East game, in a tie game, an official called a shooting foul with .5 sec in the game. Kid went to the line ... ballgame. Kinda disappointed to see that.

In same game Lakota East coach takes his point guard out for a good 5 minutes at the end of the game following a technical. Totally cost Lakota East imo.
