    Basketball Referees

    I've wondered this for awhile but with the NCAA tournament/NIT and such going on I really got to thinking who organizes the officials in college basketball. I know each football conference has their own, but is this the same for basketball? I believe I have seen several refs do games in Hilton and also at B1G games later in the season. Anyone know how this works?

    The NCAA organizes it specifically so that they can screw Iowa State.

    I always figured the Freemasons had control over the officials.

    Re: Basketball Referees

    To give you a serious answer, typically each conference has a head of officials that is responsible for scheduling and determining who officiates each game. Officials can be a part of many different conferences, and often are, so that they are able to officiate multiple games per week. I'm not 100% on how the selection process works for post-season, but I believe that each conference can nominate officials into the pool and the NCAA head of officials will select from there.

    Re: Basketball Referees

    Here is an interesting website that tracks stats of ref's (games worked, fouls called, etc.) Most ref's work 3-5 if not more games per week.
