03/19/15 – Statement on Passing of Ira Combs

2014-2015 News Releases

Commissioner Julian Tackett issued the following statement upon the death of Ira Combs-

“Ira Combs was a larger than life figure whose regular appearance at the Sweet 16 was a source of personal pride, as was his legendary work with the Joe B. Hall Classic and other high school events on an annual basis. His year-round work supporting the mountain schools, and all KHSAA schools, as well as his beloved UK Wildcats was truly a labor of love. Just yesterday, Ira stopped by press row and commented favorably on the revised press row setup, while leaving me with another commemorative pin. His passing is further proof that life is fragile and you should cherish every moment. To his beloved Dilce Combs brethren and his brothers and entire extended family, we offer our sympathies and prayers. RIP Ira.”

2014-2015 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 14, 2015

First Weekly Basketball Statistical Leader Reports Now Available

The initial weekly statistical leader reports for boys’ and girls’ basketball have been posted to KHSAA.org. Statistics are compiled weekly throughout the regular season and will be posted to the KHSAA website every Wednesday.

As a reminder, member schools are solely responsible for submitting statistical information. If a school or individual is omitted, or information is not updated, that means the team in question did not update its statistics through the KHSAA’s online system prior to the deadline.

Beginning with 2014-2015, as contained in Bylaw 27, the requirements to enter and maintain rosters, schedules and statistics will be enforced more rigorously by the KHSAA. This enforcement will subject the member schools to penalties by the Commissioner, including fines and other actions, within the constraints of Bylaw 27.

The statistical leader reports can be found through the links below:

01/06/15 – Reminder about Stats Collection REQUIREMENT and Penalties for Non Compliance

Athletic Department Blog Updates

Beginning next week (week of 1/12), we will begin compiling weekly statewide statistical leader reports. With this first compilation, any school that has NOT reported statistics for one or more games will be penalized. The likely first step will be a FINE in accordance with Bylaw 27, and the adopted fine schedule calls for a maximum fine of $100 for failure to submit the reports (per game), as well as another fine if such a team should make the state tournament and is not in compliance with the requirement. Beginning next week, those penalties will be imposed.

Please keep in mind a few other notations:

  • The statistics requested are not comprehensive by any means, but complete submission is required for each game. These individual games are then aggregated for season totals;
  • The individual games should be entered within forty-eight hours. Beginning later this week, you will begin receiving daily notices via email (both to coaches and administrators) of [...]

    08/08/14 – Reminders Regarding Bylaw 9 and Play Once School Starts

    Athletic Department Blog Updates

    Bylaw 9 has been in place for many years, and restricts players in basketball and football, who have not yet both been in grade nine and played for a high school team at some level,  from playing in outside competition once the school year begins, and until the end of the season. There has been no change to that rule proposed by the member schools of the KHSAA for a number of years.

    For the past two years, due to NCAA recruiting rules, the KHSAA has allowed an interpretative fall exception weekend to Bylaw 9. This exception allowed male student-athletes who had previously played for a boys’ team to request permission to attend one event in the fall where competition is held. The interpretative exception was made to coincide with NCAA Division I rules and the allowable recruiting periods.

    This year, based on changes to NCAA Division I Bylaw 13.7.2, the NCAA fall recruiting period [...]

    06/05/14 – NFHS Basketball Rule Changes for 2014-2015

    Basketball Blog Updates

    Lane Players Can Release When Free Throw is Attempted in High School Basketball

    Players in marked lane spaces will be able to move into the lane when the ball is released by the free-throw shooter beginning with the 2014-15 high school basketball season. Previously, players could not release until the ball touched the ring or backboard or until the free throw ended.

    This change in Rule 9-1-4 was one of four major rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Basketball Rules Committee at its April 14-16 meeting in Indianapolis. All recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

    The committee noted that the current rule of players in marked lane spaces not releasing until the ball touches the ring or backboard creates two obstacles for officials: 1) attempting to [...]

    02/24/14 – Asst. Commissioner’s Comments on Cordia-Perry County Central Incident

    2013-2014 News Releases

    “On Friday, Feb. 21 an unsporting act took place in a boys’ basketball game between Cordia and Perry County Central. The officials assigned to the game ejected one student-athlete from Cordia who was directly involved in the incident and two student-athletes from Perry County Central for leaving the bench area. While video of the incident is available online, KHSAA Board of Control Policies state that the KHSAA staff is limited in the manner in which the video is used during the disciplinary process, unless the contest officials make a request for review of the specific incident. In this instance, the contest officials made no such request and therefore the KHSAA is not permitted to act upon video evidence, and must abide by the minimum required penalty of a two-game suspension for the Cordia player and a one-game suspension for each player from Perry County Central. Administration from Cordia has reported to the KHSAA [...]

    02/24/14 – Roster Entry Reminder – Post Season

    Athletic Department Blog Updates

    This is a reminder about eligibility for postseason play in all sports, with today’s focus being on basketball. Today is the first day of basketball postseason and to be eligible to play in postseason, a student must be on ONE of the online rosters for the school (freshman, JV or varsity). It is NO LONGER NECESSARY, as has been explained throughout the year, to artificially move people up to the varsity roster for postseason or go in and make other manipulations of the roster. The listing of a student on any level roster allows for a student to play in postseason.

    Also remember that to be on any roster, the student must have participated regularly at practice with the coach and the remainder of the team, and participated in competition representing the school against other schools at the freshman, JV or varsity level. They can’t just list names on the rosters who have never practiced or [...]

    01/31/14 – Commissioner’s Comments on Injunctive Release Issued Friday In Franklin County

    2013-2014 News Releases

    “We have received the restraining order issued by the Franklin Circuit Court, and will adhere to its requirements. That said, it is likely not possible for me to disagree more with the findings of the court in its order. While it is inappropriate for this office to discuss the specific circumstances related to the matters of these students due to privacy concerns, we look forward to further judicial review and consideration about this matter. Clearly, situations such as this were intended to be regulated and restricted when the member schools passed the rules governing eligibility, and when those rules were approved by the Kentucky Board of Education and the Kentucky General Assembly. We will vigorously move forward with efforts related to these cases.”

    01/31/14 – Commissioner’s Comments Regarding Alleged Unsporting Acts Involving Sayre and Leslie County

    2013-2014 News Releases

    “The KHSAA has received information relative to alleged unsporting acts and comments made by representatives of the girls’ basketball team at Sayre High School following its game with Leslie County High School on Wednesday. As a sanctioned game under the limitation of seasons of the KHSAA, this potential violation of KHSAA Bylaw 15 would involve the Association. However, after our initial review and conversation with representatives of Sayre, we are confident that the administration of both schools and school systems are aggressively reviewing the incident and until we have final reports of their actions, will allow the process to continue at the local school level.”

    01/17/14 – Billy Hicks’ All-Time Coaching Record

    Basketball Blog Updates

    In researching the all-time coaching record for Billy Hicks, the KHSAA has uncovered two articles by the Associated Press from the fall of 1979 confirming that Evarts High School did in fact forfeit all of its games from the 1978-79 season due to the participation of ineligible players.  This information was confirmed through the review of Board of Control minutes from that time period. Due to this finding, the KHSAA cannot credit coach Hicks with the 10 wins from the 1978-79 season. 

    According to KABC records, coach Hicks entered the season with an all-time record of 817-241. The KHSAA has worked alongside coach Hicks to update his records for the 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-00 and 2001-02 seasons – adding missing wins and losses.

    There are still discrepancies for the following seasons in what the KABC records show compared to what coach Hicks’ records show:
