SCHSL Pushes Back Start of State Basketball Playoffs

Posted: Updated:
The South Carolina High School League announced Friday that the start of the state basketball playoffs has been pushed back due to the lasting effects of the ice/snow storm to hit the region.

Here is the statement from commissioner Jerome Singleton:

"The inclement weather was more devastating than anticipated. Many school districts and communities have lost electrical power, and in some areas, water supply has been lost. Many contests that were scheduled to be played over the weekend have been canceled. As a result, this pushes the end of season games well into next week.

In an effort to address these circumstances, while trying to maintain a balanced playing field (as much as possible) for all involved, the following adjustments will be made to the winter sports season for basketball.

The last day for regular season play (to include tie-breakers) is Wednesday, February 19th.

The first round of play-offs for all classifications (girls and boys) will be Thursday, February 20th.

The second round of play-offs for all classifications (girls and boys) will be Saturday, February 22nd.

The third round of play-offs for the following classifications will be Tuesday, February 25th.

Class A Girls
Class AA Girls
Class AAA Girls
Class AAAA Girls & Boys

The third round of play-offs for the following classifications will be Wednesday, February 26th at 7:00 pm.

Class A Boys
Class AA Boys
Class AAA Boys

The last day to play regular season sub-varsity contests is Saturday, February 15th. Exception: The last day to play sub-varsity tournaments is Tuesday, February 18th.

The play-off schedule for all classes will resume as originally scheduled beginning with the upper state and lower state finals.

I realize that these adjustments may present some challenges:

  • some play-off contending schools may have completed their regular season by the originally appointed date, having to wait longer to begin the play-offs,
  • having to participate in a play-off game the day after completing regular season games,
  • only one day to prepare teams for the second round of play-offs,
  • schools with both teams (girls and boys) in the play-offs may have to be at different playing sites on the same night,
  • etc.
Nonetheless, these adjustments are necessary to help accommodate the member schools that were negatively impacted by the inclement weather."
