TSSAA Girls State; Games Rescheduled - Thursday games moved to Friday

  Email   Print

For the first time anyone can remember, the Thursday TSSAA Girls State Basketball Championships were postponed due to snow and rescheduled to Friday (3/6/15).

All of the Thursday games have been moved to Friday. The entire schedule of remaining games has had to be adjusted. Those games will start later as well to allow for extra time to get to MTSU's Murphy Center and for road conditions to improve.

What about Friday (3/6/15) games?

The games that were to be played on Friday, including Oakland and Blackman semifinal contests, will now be played on Saturday (3/7/15). Since the Lady Raiders are playing a home game at 10am Saturday, those games will begin at 1:30pm. Sunday's (3/8/15) championship game times are 1pm for AAA, 3:30pm for A and 6pm for AA.

TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress tells NewsRadio WGNS there was no way they were willing to put any student athlete's life in jeopardy in order to play basketball games. We also asked Assistant Executive Director Matt Gillespie if the tournament has ever been delayed because of inclement weather. He said he was not aware of it happening.
