    CONSOLATION GAMES

    Nebraska resurrected the consolation game in the girls tournament this year (same for boys next week). I didn't see any and I didn't hear about the discussion, but, I'm sure it had something to do with $$ tix, popcorn, etc. I remember when the NCAA did away with it. There was general discussion about the teams not being "up" for a 3rd place game and they were often not well played.

    Re: CONSOLATION GAMES

    Iowa High School Athletic Association has third place games for the boy's state tournament. Don't remember if the girls union has them or not.


    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: CONSOLATION GAMES

    In South Dakota, they play a full consolation bracket. All eight teams that play in the tourney play for the entire weekend, including the First, Third, Fifth, and Seventh place games.

    Re: CONSOLATION GAMES

    In girls basketball here in Iowa there is no consolation. There definitely should be though. I think one of the reasons they don't is so that a team doesn't end their season with two straight losses.
