Tournament Note

WELCOME TO THE OSA CRUSADERS RIVER CITIES HOOPS (RCH) SUMMER TIP OFF!

SCHEDULES ARE FINAL. We will only be making changes if there is an error on our part or if a team drops.

Please note regarding the U15 - U17 Divisions:

Platinum Division teams have been divided into 2-3 Pools:

A) The RCH Platinum Showcase Pool will only play showcase games on Friday/Saturday. They are pre-seeded going into Sundays brackets. Regardless of how well they do or don't do in showcase games, their game times for Sunday are preset in the Platinum Brackets.

B) RCH Platinum 2 and in the 17's case Platinum 3A and 3B Pools will play pool games and have a chance to play their way into the Platinum Tournament Brackets. The teams who do not qualify will be placed into a Single Elimination Tournament Bracket. In U16 and U15 Divisions, teams that do not qualify will play a consolation game.

C) Cross pool games in U17 Platinum 3A and 3B Pools are Showcase Games and will have no bearing on seeding. These games will have an asterisk on the public schedule.

Please note regarding all other divisions/pools - Games with an asterisk next to them are cross-pool Showcase games and will have no bearing on bracket seeding.
