Basketball is back, and we’re again providing an opportunity to follow the schedules and scores of all 1,400+ girls and boys high school varsity teams in Michigan this winter.
Of course, to make this a 100-percent success, we would love your help.
The first games of this 2017-18 season were played Monday, and we’re aiming to again include full schedules and all scores for every MHSAA member girls and boys varsity team on our website at MHSAA.com. The task of inputting all of this data is massive – but if you’re an athletic director, coach, player or just an interested fan, a few minutes of your double checking greatly will help us out.
Check out your team’s schedule, scores and up-to-date league standings by going to the “Schools” page on MHSAA.com, searching for yours, then clicking either the “Girls” or “Boys” button in the menu to the left side of the page next to “Basketball.”
It would help us greatly if you can keep an eye out for the following:
• Incomplete schedules. Almost all of our teams have scheduled 20 games for this winter. But we have some schedules incorrectly showing fewer.
• Inaccurate schedule information. With more than 15,000 games to input, of course we will make mistakes. Let me know if you find one.
• Missing scores. While we do our best to collect what’s reported to the media, posted on Twitter and sent directly to us, there are always scores that do not get reported in any of these ways. We want to fill all of them in.
Email me directly at email@example.com, and we'll make the changes as soon as possible.
Entering scores is easy as well: Log in with a previously-created account, or click the "Register" link on the top right-hand corner of MHSAA.com, and create a new account in less than a minute. You will be able to then enter scores either on a team’s schedule page or on the Score Center page that shows all events each day.
Thanks in advance. Your help will contribute to a valuable resource for thousands of players, coaches and fans and media all over our state and beyond.
