COMMUNITY AWARDS

Our high school basketball community is made up of players, parents, coaches, athletic directors, schools, alumni, and officials. It’s no secret that the symbiosis surrounding all of these entities can be tenuous during a game. When everyone is at the top of their game, the game can be exciting and dramatic. If one of the pieces to this relationship breaks down, even for a single play, there is the potential that the focus on the game is lost, and anger is redirected at another entity.

A good official learns when and how to allow the player or coach the chance to refocus on the game. We recognize those officials here. It only seems fair then, that we also recognize those players, coaches and schools who represent our community well by staying focused on the game, helping other players and preaching good sporting behavior.

Each year, at the end of our high school season, SCBBO membership carries nominations and then votes on players, coaches and schools that best represent what we believe to be great sportsmanship. A player, coach and school representatives are presented the awards at our annual banquet.

BEST SCHOOL TABLE CREW

The SCBBO Best School Table Crew award was started in 2017 as a way to fully recognize that the people at the scorer's table are truly part of our officiating crew. The better the table, the easier the game for the three officials on the floor.
