Arabians News · Boys Basketball: County Championship


The final round of the Pizza Hut Madison County Tournament wraps up on Friday, January 8th with four games at two different locations.  Anderson Prep will host the consolation games and Lapel will host the 3rd/4th place game and the county championship.  Pendleton Heights will play Liberty Christian in the championship game.  Tipoff is scheduled for 8:00 pm.  The first semi-final game at Lapel is the host Bulldogs taking on the Frankton Eagles at 5:30 pm.  The complete bracket can be found by clicking here.

Following the championship game, the winning team will be permitted to cut the nets down.  This celebratory tradition will take place once the losing team has cleared the court and their fans have left the gym.  To avoid any unnecessary exposure to the student-athletes and putting future contests in danger, no fans will be permitted on the floor during this time.  All team personnel will be required to wear masks while taking part in the net cutting.

On Wednesday, December 3o, 2020, Madison County was elevated to a “red” advisory level, per the Indiana Department of Health metric, based on the 7-day average of positive cases and rate of cases per 100,000 people in the county.  To comply with Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-50, the following attendance restrictions will need to be required.  All tournament games will be limited to participants, guardians, and minor siblings (under 18).  There will be no exceptions to this compliance plan.  Additionally, each ticket will only be good for one game.  At the conclusion of the first game at each site, the gym will be cleared, cleaned, and sanitized.  Fans and teams for the 8:00 pm game will not be permitted to enter until gates reopen.  Each host site will provide ticket information and arrival times permitted prior to each game.  Tickets will be available for $6.00 each game.  Live online streaming will be provided when possible.
