    Sorry if this has already been posted elsewhere, but I didn't see it.
    Georgia High School Association officials are catching heat for baskets placed improperly at state basketball title games.
    GHSA, Macon Coliseum take heat for misaligned baskets

    Few things sprang to mind to me.
    1) How could it happen?
    2) After learning of a possible issue on the second night, how could they not double check and even make a change between games? These were all title games, so the winning teams wouldn't be affected later.
    3) Seven divisions in both girls and boys basketball? The GHSA website showed only 454 schools this year and 455 next year, and one class only has 48 schools for the 2016-17 season.

    That's because the devil went down there.

    And Arkansas is set up the same way with almost half the number of schools. There are only 16 schools in each of the top two classifications.

    Norman Dale just looked for another player to punch.

    "I think you'll find these are the exact same measurements as our gym in Hickory."
    "Uh, no, coach, the free throw line is 16 feet."
    "What the fuck? Who laid out this court, drunk-ass Shooter on his Saturday night bender?"

    The worst part was players getting rebounds right under the basket and coming down out of bounds.

    You'd think the Coliseum staff would have some tape or Sharpie marks on the floor to indicate roughly where the goals should be set up. smh
