Central , Northeast and East Districts higher seeds host sectional gamesGrew up near and live in Delphos and in this area schools have been cutting down nets since I was in school 40+ years ago. All tournament games here are on neutral courts. What parts of Ohio has teams hosting tournament games?
Be like when a team beat Steubenville on their court for the sectional title and they raised the rims right after the games and told the winning school to kick rocks31 of 64 districts throughout the state on the boys side play the first two rounds at the higher seeded team. I didn't go through the girls brackets, but assume it to be probably close to the same.
Must have been an awful lot of people standing. Bluffton's website says the Sommer Center holds 1500Wasn't aware so many districts had teams play on their home court in tournament. Not sure that would fly here in NW/WC Ohio. My team played in a sectional final on Friday night. Attendance was estimated around 3,000.
I couldn't make it to the game. That came from a newspaper article. https://www.limaohio.com/sports/399815/boys-basketball-crestview-columbus-grove-triumph-in-d-iv-sectional-finals?fbclid=IwAR1BdeQyv_N-ZPVl2cvA5ubtTo5gJ1giPXtgu-bde2uYLwlhgllCwofdnCUMust have been an awful lot of people standing.

Now that I think about it, how different is that from 1-4 in football hosting 5-8 in the first game?Wasn't aware so many districts had teams play on their home court in tournament. Not sure that would fly here in NW/WC Ohio. My team played in a sectional final on Friday night. Attendance was estimated around 3,000.
So what? If someone wants to make em then why does it bother ya so much? Personally I wouldn't do it but if they thought it was a big enough of a deal then go for it. I've seen schools print junior high league champ shirts...no big deal.Several years ago an Akron Parochial had shirts printed up for “Sectional Champs.” What a JOKE.
Especially if no kids on the state champ team remain. In south west Ohio small school ball a conference title is often followed by cutting down the net. Probably not typical to cut down the net if you are on your opponets floor. Neutral sites or your home floor have at it.I saw a team that won a state title in the last few years cut down the nets after winning a sectional title Friday night. It’s a tradition in some areas.
Winning the District Title is be a big deal, especially in the smaller communities. I have no problem with fire truck escorts after winning the district. Small towns take a lot of pride in their teams. That is why the D4 public schools outdraw most of the other divisions at the State Tournament. They are not AAU driven teams.I see schools getting the police/fire escort back home after winning a district title now....come on! It used to be if you won a State title you got that...it’s back to the theory of trying to give everyone a pat on the back and trophy.
