Thurston High School notified me this morning that their gym was double-booked. All games from Thurston HS have been moved to Springfield HS.
Times have not changed. The only change is the venue. All games at Thurston HS have been moved to Springfield HS.
I apologize for the late change.

COACHES -If you have issues with our officials, please note the time of game and court and give a brief description of the official and the exact issue.I do not deal with referee issues in the gym. Do not call me about officials during the weekend; you won't like the answer I give you.I value your opinion as coaches and want to have the best referees on the court as possible, but there is a system in place that I expect you to respect.
PARENTS -If you have an issue with a referee, you must direct it through your coach. Parents or coaches who confront an official after the game will be banned from future games/events.
My staff and I look forward to hosting you this weekend.

Attached is the list of teams for this weekend in Eugene. If you aren't on there, I don't have you registered! If you are on there and it's a mistake, please call me at (541) 517-4160
TIME REQUESTS -Any and all time requests need to be done online:http://oabbasketball.com/time-requests/(exception being travel time on Saturday).Even if you have e-mailed me; called me, spoke with me or gotten any kind of confirmation from me...I do not have you down for a time request. The only way to submit a time reqest is online.
SCHEDULE POSTED -I anticipate the schedule being posted very late Tuesday night. If you are a night owl check before you go to bed. If not, you'll see it first thing Wednesday morning.
FACILITIES USING -This is still up in the air. We have Marist HS, Thurston HS & Springfield HS all reserved this weekend; however all those programs have teams playing in the state tournament this week and are hesitant to commit to hosting a weekend tournament. We will be finalizing which gyms we will be using tomorrow.
My staff and I look forward to hosting you this weekend,
