The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association adopted stricter rules for transfers on Wednesday. The PIAA board of directors suspended protocol and passed a rule that makes a student-athlete who transfers during the 10th-grade year or beyond ineligible for the district and state playoffs for one season, except in the case of a hardship waiver. “We're not a team of transfers, so it won't affect us very much,” said Imhotep Charter boys' basketball coach Andre Noble, also the school's athletic director. A hardship waiver could be granted by a district committee if there is a change in residence necessitated by a change in employment; a school-initiated administrative transfer within a school district; a court-ordered transfer; a change of schools caused by a military reassignment of a parent; a change in schools caused by release from a juvenile facility; or a demonstrable change in income or other financial resources that compels withdrawal from a PIAA school.

Robinson dominated in the Arizona Interscholastic Association at Gilbert Higley during his sophomore season.

My daughter and I were at Jimtown High School working on basketball drills one hot summer day a little over a decade ago as coach Randy DeShone brought his JHS varsity boys basketball team together for a workout. As the team stretched and then began their workout, a smallish blonde with a ponytail stuck out among the guys. Sarah DeShone. "Those guys were really great in letting me practice with them,'' Sarah said. "I learned so much playing against them and it really helped me improve as a player. It was also another great opportunity to listen to my dad coach and learn from him.'' Full disclosure, I've known Sarah since she was a 12-year-old dominating Elkhart County girls basketball as a sixth-grader.
