Not a matter of schools monitoring players. It's a matter the increased number of cases going to cause kids to have to quarantine if a family member gets it, teams to have to quarantine if a player on the team gets it, etc... I agree go ahead and try and play now as nothing much is going to...
Because schools are scared of what is going to happen when students return from Thanksgiving break. I would assume any short term pause of that time frame would be to give a week after break to see what cases might develop from the Thanksgiving holiday.
It won't be rescheduling "the game". It will likely be rescheduling 4-5 games if a team has to shutdown for 14 days. I am not saying that the season should or should not be paused, but the rescheduling in basketball will be more involved than it was in football.
I don't think the pause was ever going to come from Dewine. It would come from the OHSAA. The OHSAA is the one who sent out a survey to all schools asking for their opinion on whether to carry on or pause. I would imagine the OHSAA will make a decision based upon responses to that survey.
X has huge advantages... not saying they are recruiting but they can draw from all over, have great facilities, plenty of money flowing into the athletic program, great parental support, etc... To be honest I am not sure how X was so bad in basketball for so many years.
I'm afraid things aren't looking good for basketball season. If teams are going to be quarantined every time a player tests positive or every time that they have played against someone who then tests positive, there aren't going to be enough teams left to play.
Hamilton may have a shot to contend with Moe. They picked up a 7 footer who is committed to Auburn... transferred in from Hawaii. Rumblings they may have a couple others that have followed him. And Moeller lost Land and Currin who were seniors last year, and McCracken who was a junior last...
