AAA: Arkansas High School Basketball Pushed Back 1 Week
The Arkansas Activities Association made the decision to extend the high school basketball season by a week to give teams the opportunity to complete their seasons and tournaments. The announcement was made Friday by the AAA, due to the many Covid-19 cancellations and recent winter storms that hit the state.
“Due to the amount of covid-19 cancellations during the regular season, a conference tournament may be needed for correct seeding into the regional and state tournaments,” the AAA said in a news release. “Schools and conferences will need to check the updated deadlines for submitting their final seeds to the AAA. The AAA is committed to finding the most equitable solution when dealing with covid-19-related no-contests and with unprecedented weather conditions that prevent the timely completion of the season.”
