Boys' basketball: Fax error leaves Notre Dame out of playoffs
The Southern Section Division 4AA playoff pairings are out, and missing is Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, the No. 7-ranked team in the division. Notre Dame Coach Bill Bedgood says he saw his school athletic secretary fax the request for Notre Dame to be an at-large team. The Southern Section says it never received the fax.
Come on, people. Someone should have contacted Notre Dame. They were a ranked team and obviously wanted to be in playoffs. And Notre Dame should have called to confirm the fax. Mistakes were made but that's not enough to deny the team a playoff berth. Let's hope this gets fixed fast.
