SPSL suspends AR boys hoop coach for entire season

Jason Brown will not coach the Auburn Riverside boys basketball team for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

The SPSL athletic directors voted Thursday to suspend Brown for the entire season for violations of the WIAA rules regarding the minimum practices required for players to participate in a contest and the limitations on the amount of time a player can play in a jamboree.

Brown, in his second season, had just completed a four-game suspension for violation of the WIAA out-of-season contact rules and would have been back on the bench for tonight’s game against fourth-ranked Kentridge.

Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings — Week 7

Gotta love high-school volleyball, right?

And if you’re reading this, you must.

On any given night….

There are certainly no sure things, although I feel pretty good about the teams I’ve got ranked in each of the top three classifications — Bellarmine Prep, Southridge and Burlington Edison. Those jive with the Coaches Association rankings, too (not that those have a great deal of influence on mine, to be honest). I’ve had Bellarmine and Southridge at the top all season, although West Valley of Yakima started No. 1 in 2A.

At any rate, the “shocker” last week was Kentridge’s 3-2 victory over Kentwood, which had been cruising along and had shot up to No. 2 after an earlier win over Emerald Ridge. The Conquerors were even in’s top-100. No longer. Kentridge started the season 0-7, but has been playing better as of late and that win over KW was a third straight — followed by a 3-0 loss to Auburn Riverside.

As far as the rankings go, it’s the time of the season where it’s difficult to make huge changes based on a single match, because you have to keep the bigger picture in focus.
