"It would explain a great many things" -- Spock

On one of my trips home in the last year, I noticed the construction of another set of collapsible bleachers atop the boys (south) shelf of Glenbrook North's main gym. They don't run the full width of the shelf, nor the full height of the ceiling (unlike the set that has long graced the girls (north) shelf.) But they add enough seating capacity to put North over the threshold for hosting a boys basketball sectional. (I once asked Jim Bloch why we never did that, back when I was in college, and he cited capacity as the deal-killer.) In all likelihood, they'll play their regional games up the road at Deerfield, and get the next two rounds at home (outcomes willing.) I wonder what the deal is this year with playoff sites... there's a lot of "TBA"s at all levels. Even two TBA supersectional sites. Given that these are almost always Division I college facilities, I would think the lead times to book them are long enough they should all already be booked. *shrug* There is progress. The site announcement has UIC filled in for two supersectional TBAs that appeared on last month's winter bracket drawing.
