Wisconsin's Premier Boys Youth Basketball League

* Year End Tournament Information *

Teams will be seeded #1-20 into a bracket (based upon your league performance).  Win the first game and you advance to the Championship side.  Lose your first game and you head to the Consolation side of the bracket.  From that point on, any loss means you're knocked out.  With a huge slate of games scheduled for Feb 25th, and given the brackets have to be at the printer by 5pm on Monday Feb 26th, time will be tight.  That means the brackets will be posted on the website Tuesday morning, Feb 27th.  Your game times and location will be available at that time.

Some teams will get moved up or down a division for the Championships.  Here is an example of whom would be effected in the 6th, 7th & 8th grades if the season were to end today (I will do the others shortly).  Also remember that any team that was moved up or down during the season will only be judged on how they did in the 12 games in their new division.  Any unreported score I will consider a LOSS for both teams.  Ties for seeding will be broken by head-to-head result.  If a 3 or 4-way tie, I will try to determine if 1 or 2 stood out amongst the tying teams.  If no clear determination, it will be who played best against the top 3-4 teams in the division.

8A   The bottom team will drop to 8B+  (projected to be Brookfield East).

8B+ The top team will rise to 8A (projected to be Nicolet).  The bottom two will fall (projected to be Grafton (8C) & Waterford).

8B   The top two teams will rise (projected to be Slinger-red & Brookfield Central).  The bottom team will fall (projected to be Brown Deer).

8C  The top two teams will rise to 8B (projected to be New Berlin West & Watertown).

7A  The bottom team will drop to 7B+ (projected to be Muskego)

7B+ The top team will rise to 7A (projected to be Union Grove).  The bottom team will fall to 7B (projected to be NB Eisenhower).

7B  Two teams will rise to 7B+ (Franklin / Slinger (volunteered)).  The bottom team will fall to 7C (projected to be Tosa East-black). 

7C  The top team will rise to 7B (projected to be South Milwaukee).

6A  The bottom team will drop to 6B+ (projected Sheboygan North)

6B+  The top team will rise to 6A (projected Waukesha North).  One team will fall to 6B ( Mukwonago).

6B  The top team will rise (right now a coin flip between Homestead & Cedarburg).  The bottom two will fall to 6C (projected West Bend West and Whitnall).

6C  The top two will rise to 6B (projected Milwaukee Lutheran & Port Washington). 

 

 

   * How to Report Game Results *

 

The winning team is responsible for reporting the game result.  Please send the result in no later than the end of Monday following the game.  Better still, with today's technology at your disposal, send it in immediately after your game!  We will update the website and the comparative scores will be available for all to see.

Send an email to:

Include the date, grade, division, the teams and score.  An example is this:
Nov 7th, 8A, North 39 East 37

 

 

The WYBL is a league that supports community-based teams.  It is required that each player reside in your school district or currently open enroll into your school district.  Let me be clear on this: no teams shall be comprised on multi-district players.  Players should be assigned to teams within their grade level (or play "up") and not according to age

As is always the case, please contact me at any time with questions and/or suggestions.  The aim is to continue to improve to make the WYBL the best youth boys basketball league in the State.  For Information Concerning the League please Contact Lee Clement.  The email address is Leeclement1@yahoo.com Leeclement1@yahoo.com Leeclement1@yahoo.comPhone number is 414 839-6800

Basketball Thoughts & Observations

A Basketball Carol

As the story goes, Ebenezer Coach was watching a basketball game on TV with his family when he observed a player travel.  “Bah turnover”, he said.  A few minutes later, after an offensive rebound and subsequent put-back, he replied, “bah, box-out”.  Though it turned out to be an exciting game for the majority of the family, Ebenezer was always negative and uttered his last “bah, humbug” before heading upstairs and going to bed.

Immediately upon entering a deep sleep, he encountered the Ghost of Red Auerbach, who reminded him that basketball is a team game best performed when all players are fundamentally sound and operating as one.  Do not coddle your stars (they’ll thank you later), but teaching is best done through positive rather than negative reinforcement.  And with that advice, he faded in to the distant past.

Next to appear was the Ghost of Phil Jackson.  He was preaching patience and the need to not be so negative when dealing with today’s players.  Different generations often require unique approaches.  “The best way to get a horse to drink from the water is to have them believe it was their idea in the first place to go there”, opined the Zen-master.  The map to the watering hole may turn out to be curve-linear, but the end result will be more rewarding.  With those thoughts, he, too, then vanished into the night.

The last vision presented to Ebenezer startled him.  It was a bit hazy, but he could see that a man was prowling the sidelines of a youth basketball game and berating referees over phantom non-calls.  He was yelling at his players and being critical of the outcomes even when they attempted to do the right thing.  He could see the unhappy looks on the parent’s faces as the coach continued his overbearing ways.  What poor sportsmanship, thought Ebenezer.  Where on Earth did he ever learn such behavior?  Shaking his head in an attempt to rid himself of this vision only served to clarify the apparition.  Try as he may, there was no denying it.  There, on the sideline, was the Ghost of Basketball Future…….his own son!

His restless night was broken by the alarm clock signaling his wake up call.  

Wiping the sleep from his eyes Ebenezer Coach thought to himself, “yes, that was a wake up call indeed”.

It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.
