We have had some inquiries about the SWC basketball tournament as far as location and times. The conference does the seeding next week based on power points as they want all games possible played to make sure the seedings are correct. Once they get those they will assign the brackets and we post them as quick as we can. Recently it was approved that all boys and girls game be played on Mondays and the conference is trying to secure officials for all the possible sites to make that possible. In years past we have alternated the boys and girls games on Mondays and Tuesdays but with such a tight schedule that week it was decided to allow a snow day during that week so they are hoping to move all games to Mondays from this point forward.
