OFF DAYS - here is the list of teams and which date they will play this game:

We have some amazing matchups- for you- on 1 off-day per season.

Imagine your perfect matchup- a 5 point game- against a team you have never played against.

By playing 1 off-day per season, you will get that great game.

And in fact, because the other leagues will be (playing on an off-day, too)- you will get another great matchup.

So our off-day program will possibly give you 2 new teams to play a close game against! Its all about VARIETY and PARITY.

If your a Masters Team, you will get to play another Masters team from another day, if your an A team, you get an A team from another day.

That all being said, we realize that your time/days are valuable and spoken for-- so we want to give you advance notice of this off-day.

Please note your off day of play (now)- and make the appropriate adjustments ahead of time so you can make this game:

  • We have playoffs: College Football has Playoffs -finally- and so does PortlandBasketball.com! The reason we did not do playoffs in the past is because playoffs- historically have teams no-showing (no shows occurred because 'playoffs' occur in set times & locations that did not fit certain teams needs) and so historically PortlandBasketball.com found that teams would rather have all their games be intentionally scheduled rather than have playoffs that occur in a bad time/location. In fact, PortlandBasketball.com focus is two things we consider more important: 1. we provide parity each week (close games) & 2. we allow for schedule requests.
  • There are 4 championships per year; here is how we define our seasons: each season such as Summer 1 & Summer 2 are separately paid for 7 game seasons, but for the sake of defining a 'Summer Champion', it is the combination of the playing in both Summer 1 & Summer 2 that creates your overall record to get you in the 'Summer Championship tournament' (restated: 'Summer1' & 'Summer2'- will have one Summer champion). Thus, PortlandBasketball.com will have a Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring tournament.
  • Date of playoffs: the final week of the 2nd season (for example- for Spring 1 season & Spring 2 season, the championship will occur on the final date of 'Spring 2' season)
  • Awards: you get a photo- Facebook fame! And you got to play 1 free game (the Championship game is an extra/bonus game).
  • To qualify- requirement #1: to play in the tournament you must have played in both seasons of that 'seasonal name' (example for 'Spring' you must have played in Spring1 & Spring2). Exception: for teams that joined late you can 'pay for extra games' as long as you get to 10 games one week prior to the playoff dates).
  • To qualify- requirement #2: - you must finish in the top 4 rankings (in your skill level) & (from the day that you are playing).
  • To qualify- requirement #3: you must be a team with matching jersey colors (every week) plus you paid on time.
  • To quality- requirement #4: if your team caused a game to end early- your team will not eligible to partake in the playoffs
  • The following are the championships that will occur (must play both the 1st & 2nd season- such as Fall1 & Fall2 to be eligible):
  • Monday A & B (the top 4 teams from all the As and Bs will be invited to one combined A tournament)
  • Monday C (the top 4 teams from all the Cs will be invited to a C championship tournament)
  • Monday Rec (the top 4 teams from all the RECREATIONAL teams will be invited to a RECREATIONAL championship tournament)
  • Monday WOMEN  (top 2 ranked teams after the 2 seasons- will play for the 'Womens league championship')
  • Tuesday (top 4 ranked teams after the 2 seasons- will play for the 'Tuesday league championship')
  • Wednesday A & B (the top 4 teams from all the As and Bs will be invited to one combined A tournament)
  • Wednesday C (the top 4 teams from all the Cs will be invited to a C championship tournament)
  • Wednesday Rec (the top 4 teams from all the RECREATIONAL teams will be invited to a RECREATIONAL championship tournament)
  • Thursday (top 4 ranked teams from all the levels- after the 2 seasons- will play for the 'Thursday league championship')
  • Friday (this league does not have a championship- just 7 games)
  • Saturday (this league does not have a championship- just 7 games)
  • Sunday A & B (the top 4 teams from all the As and Bs will be invited to one combined A tournament)
  • Sunday C (the top 4 teams from all the Cs will be invited to a C championship tournament)
  • Sunday Rec (the top 4 teams from all the RECREATIONAL teams will be invited to a RECREATIONAL championship tournament)
  • Sunday COED (top 2 ranked CoEd teams after the 2 seasons- will play for the 'CoEd league championship')

 

Legal Guarding position (1 min)

Legal defensive position is that you are square (in front of) opponent prior to their final step of the move/shot. After the 'moment' of being in front and in 'legal guarding position'- you can be moving backward and/or jumping up and contact should be legal, as seen in this video; in fact, if you are in front and displaced, it can be a charge call.

Incidental contact (21 sec)

This play could have been a no-call as the contact seems very incidental ('incidental' meaning- the contact did not create an unfair advantage for the person being contacted). This video seems to show a defender flopping, not a defender displaced by contact and therefore this could just as easily be a 'no-call' from the referee as the contact was incidental.

Incidental contact (26sec) example 2

Defense gets to position prior to final step of offensive player- thus, the contact is going to be a no call or an offensive foul (offensive foul if the offensive player then displaces/dislodges the defender).

No Call - On a Shot (40 sec)

This is a no-call because the defense is there. Restated - contact is legal if the defense is there first.

No Call - On a Shot (1 min) example 2

This could be a no-call as the contact is not creating a disadvantage and trained referees know that a foul requires three things: 1) illegal position with 2) contact and 3) a disadvantage created and as the ball goes in pretty easily in this video, it kind of makes the argument that there was not really a disadvantage created.

Block/Charge? (36 sec)

Defense gets to position prior to final step of offensive player- thus, the contact is going to be a no call or an offensive foul (offensive foul if the offensive player then displaces/dislodges the defender).

Block/Charge? (1 min) example 2

This looks like a good call (a defensive foul). Plus if you think about it- a defender really should be 'defending'- not setting up for flops. A defender is a player trying to legally impede an offensive player from scoring- but the guy in the video is not trying to prevent scoring as much as he is trying to 'work the referees'.

Various Examples of Foul Calls (6 minutes)

PortlandBasketball.Com encourages players and referees to watch this video. There are 10 explanations of fouls vs 'no calls' vs charges in this training video.

Law of Verticality (1 minute)

If defender gets "in front of" an offensive player prior to that offensive player's final step of his move/shot, than that defender is entitled to (law of verticality) to the space behind him and 'to the ceiling'; in other words the defender can jump straight up (but- proof of jumping straight up- is that defender landed close to the same spot on floor when coming down). Important- for safety- to understand this concept of jumping straight up as opposed to jumping outward.

Law of Verticality (6 minutes) explanation

All players in PortlandBasketball.com, for safety reasons, need to watch this video explanation of the law of verticality and how it relates to safety- thank you.
