Chicago Tribune: IHSA to revise state finals schedule if Jewish team advances

Tribune report

2:51 p.m. CST, February 28, 2013

“The schedule for the Class 1A and 2A boys basketball state finals will be revised to avoid a religious conflict if Chicagoland Jewish High School of Deerfield qualifies, the IHSA said Thursday.

Chicagoland Jewish advanced to the finals of the Class 1A Mooseheart Sectional by beating the host school Wednesday and will play for the sectional title Saturday. The school then would have to win Tuesday’s Northern Illinois University Supersectional to reach the state finals March 8-9 at the Peoria Civic Center.

To avoid requiring Chicagoland Jewish to play on the Jewish Sabbath — from after sundown Friday to sundown Saturday — the revised schedule for Saturday, March 9 would shift the Class 2A state championship and third-place games to the first session (12:15 to 2 p.m.), with the Class 1A games to be played in the evening (6:30 and 8:15 p.m.).

The schedule for Friday, March 8 would remain unchanged, with the Class 1A semifinals being played at 12:15 and 2 p.m. and the Class 2A semifinals set for 6:30 and 8:15 p.m.”
