12/17/15 – First Basketball Stat Leader Reports Released

2015-2016 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 17, 2015

The first weekly statistical leader reports for girls’ and boys’ basketball have been posted at KHSAA.org. Statistics are compiled weekly throughout the season and will be posted to the KHSAA website each week.

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 last season, as contained in Bylaw 27, the requirements to enter and maintain rosters, schedules and statistics was enforced more rigorously by the KHSAA. This enforcement subjects member schools to penalties by the Commissioner, including fines and other actions, within the constraints of Bylaw 27.

Administrators and Coaches should remind all participants who have previously been both enrolled in grade 9 AND who have played for a high school of this important restriction.

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.”

01/14/15 – First Basketball Statistical Leader Reports Released; NFHS Names Mueller, Bender National Coaches of the Year

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 […]
