NCHC Bracket Page
Friday & Saturday Schedule
There are NO Gate fees at Nationals this week.
A KEY part of NCHBC is our immediate score updates to brackets.
In order for this to happen coaches (or whomever they appoint)
MUST report the game scores right after the game is over.
TEXT SCORES to 405-266-3686
PLEASE you this format when Texting scores:
1. Gender w/ Age and then BRACKET Title (ex. Boys 16u D1 3A)
2. Team name w/ score vs Team name w/ score
Example: Boys 16u D1 3A San Juan Rams 66 vs HECHA 59
Everyday we are have almost 200 games playing, so the bracket title (think of it as your street address) is KEY.
It makes finding your game and recording the scores quickly possible.
As soon as your game is over:
1. Text scores
2. Clear the scores from scoreboard 3. Set 6 minutes on the clock for the next team's warm up.

OT is 4 minutes for 18u & 3 minutes for all other age groups. In OT both teams get 1 additional timeout
We honor the facility rules, if allowed by facility noisemakers are permitted
Sportsmanship is encouraged and we ask that fans cease use during opponents FT's & during breaks in action: timeouts, etc.
Teams may shoot during halftime of the game before your game.
If your team is in uniform and teams playing are not using the court.
Under no circumstances should fans or children be shooting at half time. They cannot be on the court at all.
If a coach, player or fan is ejected* from a game by an official or NCHBC tournament staff, the following three things must happen:
1. The ejected person must leave the faciility immediately. NOT just the gym but the facility.
2. They must notify via TEXT the NCHBC headquarters of their ejection within two hours at 405-831-1409
3. They are ineligible to attend the next game for that specific team. No exceptions.
Failure to comply will result in potential additional penalties to individual, team, and program that could extend into future seasons.
*This includes but is not limited to: receiving two technical fouls.
