#A10WBB: The Road To RVA Begins In Earnest.....

The New Year's weekend is loaded with Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball action as both the Richmond Spiders and VCU Rams get home games to end 2016 and begin 2017 respectively.

Richmond, in its conference opener, will face a perennial power who has struggled mightily in its non-conference schedule, as the Saint Joseph's Hawks come to the Robins Center for a 2pm tip on Saturday.

Meanwhile, VCU, already 0-1 in conference play because of a loss at George Washington in early December, will host one of the biggest conference surprises early on in La Salle, who won their conference opener in December, for a Sunday afternoon affair at 1pm at the Siegel Center.

Follow @TheRVASportsNet on Twitter both Saturday and Sunday for live coverage of both the Spiders and Rams, then join us on Twitter Thursday night when the two conference, and city, rivals collide in the first of two meetings at Siegel Center at 7pm!

RVA Sports Network, proud to be your Richmond-area home for coverage of all of Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball, culminating with the 2017 Atlantic 10 Basketball Championship at the Richmond Coliseum March 4th through 6th!

New RVA Sports Network Top 10 High School Basketball Polls!

We have some changes in light of the first week of the 2016 Holiday Feast of Hoops! See below for how teams have shifted in both the boys and girls polls after the Times-Dispatch Invitational Tournament, the Jaguar Jamboree, and the Hermitage Winter Classic.

BOYS:

1) L.C. Bird (was #1)
2) Trinity Episcopal (was #3)
3) Monacan (was #2)
4) John Marshall (was #5)
5) Mills Godwin (was #6)
6) Henrico (was #7)
7) Varina (was #4)
8) Highland Springs (was #9)
9) St. Christopher's (was #10)
10) Hopewell (was #8)

NOTES: The impressive work of Trinity Episcopal gives them the nod to rise to #2 for the first time, upending Monacan, though still unbeaten. The Titans get a chance at another holiday title this coming week at Henrico Holiday Hoops (be sure to listen live on The RVA Sports Network!). At holiday tournament time, you can lose a game and still improve your standing depending upon how other teams fare, explaining the rise of John Marshall and Mills Godwin, and, with two recent losses, a slight fall for Varina. But the Blue Devils are still a high-level team. There may have been no one in Virginia who could have beaten Trinity Monday night at the Times-Dispatch Invitational Tournament Championship. Keep an eye on Benedictine, who although just 2-6, nearly knocked off Trinity and can improve that record at their own Capital City Classic this week.

GIRLS:

1) Monacan (was #1)
2) Highland Springs (was #2)
3) Trinity Episcopal (was #3)
4) St. Catherine's (was #5)
5) J.R. Tucker (was #6)
6) Hopewell (was #4)
7) Cosby (was #7)
8) James River (was #8)
9) L.C. Bird (was #10)
10) Varina (new)

Dropping Out: Huguenot

NOTES: Monacan remains unbeaten after another big set of wins out of town, this time winning the Crescom Bank Invitational in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, while Highland Springs captured their third consecutive T-DIT title. Trinity Episcopal, who was impressive in the T-DIT finals, holds to #3, while St. Catherine's moves up with a third place finish, and so does unbeaten J.R. Tucker, the champions of the first Hermitage Winter Classic. At that tourney, Varina went 2-1 and has put people on notice that they will battle Highland Springs and L.C. Bird in Conference 12. J.R. Tucker, who only achilles heel right now is lack of depth, is, right now, the best team in Conference 11.

New RVA Sports Network Top 10 Basketball Polls

No changes near the top, but lots of changes in the back seven of both Top 10 high school basketball polls this week from The RVA Sports Network as we head into the Times-Dispatch Invitational Tournament Championship Round Monday and a host of Winter Break tournaments across the Central Region.

BOYS:

1) L.C. Bird (was #1)
2) Monacan (was #2)
3) Trinity Episcopal (was #3)
4) Varina (was #6)
5) John Marshall (was #5)
6) Mills Godwin (was #10)
7) Henrico (was #7)
8) Hopewell (was #8)
9) Highland Springs (NEW)
10) St. Christopher's (was #4)

NOTES: The top three stay intact, while Varina moves over John Marshall after handing the Justices their first loss in the T-DIT Semifinals Saturday. Unbeaten Mills Godwin knocks Hermitage out of the Top 10 and leaps over Henrico, whom they defeated Thursday. St. Christopher's tumbles six spots after two early T-DIT losses.

GIRLS:

1) Monacan (was #1)
2) Highland Springs (was #2)
3) Trinity Episcopal (was #7)
4) Hopewell (was #6)
5) St. Catherine's (was #5)
6) J.R. Tucker (was #8)
7) Cosby (was #4)
8) James River (was #9)
9) Huguenot (was #3)
10) L.C. Bird (was #10)

NOTES: The Chiefs get a win Saturday in South Carolina, stay unbeaten, at the top of our poll, and in the Top 10 of the USA Today Super 25. Highland Springs will go for another T-DIT title Monday when they face Trinity Episcopal, who zoom up to #3 with two big wins, handing Hopewell their first loss in Saturday's semifinal. Hopewell handed Cosby its first loss Friday in the first round before the Titans handed Huguenot its second loss in less than 24 hours as the Falcons fall six positions. J.R. Tucker now sniffs the top five.

Big River Rivalry: North Rolls To Big Victory

A 14-14 tie quickly turned into a rout as the North scored the final 45 points of the 4th Annual Big River Rivalry to take a 59-14 win over the South Saturday at Day Field on the campus of Randolph-Macon College.

Highland Springs quarterback Juwan Carter (pictured below, #14) threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, while St. Christopher's quarterback John Damgard added 105 yards and a touchdown on the final play of the first half to Kahli Andrews of Thomas Jefferson.

Queshon Baker of Atlee completed a 42 yard pass on an option play (see below, #10) and stripped a South interception to retain possession for the North deep in South territory. Douglas Freeman's Tanner Dobrucky caught three passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns.

The South was led by Frank Boyd of Manchester, who rushed for 84 yards and had an opening kickoff return of 36 yards. The North now leads the series 3-1.

BASEBALL: New Pitch Count Rules Passed By VHSL

Following the mandate set forth a few months back by the National Federation of State High School Associations, the Virginia High School League (VHSL) passed emergency legislation at its Executive Committee meeting Wednesday to set new pitch count limits for high school baseball pitchers. Previously, the rules were based on number of innings pitched. That has now been changed to an actual pitch count.

Here is the new ruling as posted on the VHSL Handbook as of Wednesday:

56-4-2: Pitching Regulations: For the purposes of this rule, the pitch count is based on pitches thrown to the batters during their time at bat. Warm-up pitches allowed before each inning or warm-up pitches allowed by the umpire in case of injury or game delay do not count. All NFHS substitution and pitching rules must be followed.

A dead ball pitch will not be considered as a pitch for the purposes of pitch count (e.g., a pitch thrown when time is called, a balk or illegal pitch, etc.)

A pitcher at the Varsity or Sub-Varsity level who reaches the maximum pitch count limitation allowed per day during an inning will be afforded the opportunity to finish pitching to the current batter at bat.

The following provisions apply to regular season as well as postseason play:

Specific rest periods are in place when a pitcher reaches a high threshold of pitches delivered in a day.

MAXIMUM PITCHES ALLOWED PER DAY: 110 (Varsity and Sub-Varsity)

The rest periods required during regular season and postseason tournament play are listed below:

1) If a pitcher throws 101 or more pitches in a day, four (4) calendar days of rest must be observed.
2) If a pitcher throws 76-100 pitches in a day, three (3) calendar days of rest must be observed.
3) If a pitcher throws 51-75 pitches in a day, two (2) calendar days of rest must be observed.
4) If a pitcher throws 26-50 pitches in a day, one (1) calendar day of rest must be observed.
5) If a pitcher throws 1-25 pitches in a day, no calendar day or rest is required before pitching again.

No pitcher may throw more than 51 pitches over two consecutive days. If a pitcher throws 51 pitches over two consecutive days, one (1) calendar day of rest must be observed.

A "calendar day" refers to a time period beginning at midnight on one calendar day and ending at 11:59pm on that same day. A calendar day of rest begins with the day following the first day a pitch is thrown.

A "calendar day" means that if a pitcher throws 76 pitches on Tuesday, that player may not pitch again until Saturday. It a pitcher throws 25 pitches on Tuesday, that pitcher may pitch again on the next day, which is Wednesday. The starting time of the game does not matter in the calculation of when a pitcher is eligible to pitch again.

Schools shall document each player's pitch count using the Game Changer Application for tracking purposes. The home scorebook and pitch count accounting is official but it is recommended that opposing teams compare as the game progresses for accuracy. Umpires will not be a part of the process.
