: So I read that CIF has a 20 game season stipulation for boys basketball.

: I am under the impression that for teams that are in a 6 school league that this typically is partitioned this way.

: 10 league games (2 rounds against 5 teams due to home and away games)
: 4 non-league games (chosen by the coach - not sure by what criteria - proximity, level of competition, prior arrangements).
: 6 games at tournaments (where each tournament counts for 2 games, with the understanding that most tournaments you actually play 4).

: True total is then 26 games per season PRIOR to playoffs.

: My question is how are some teams playing 28-29 games?

: How does a 5th tournament game (played as a friendly count)?

: How does playing international team count?

: How does playing out of state games/invitationals count?

: Can a coach conceivably schedule 30-35 games before playoffs?

The regulation of tournaments has become a little questionable. However a team can play 5 games in tournaments. Many Orange County and Santa Barbara county tournaments have started to implement this. Used to be only larger tournaments could have a fifth game. Now it does not matter what size the tournament, teams can play a fifth game. I say questionable because I think the "tournaments" are just a bunch of friendlies that the director/participating teams call a tournament. Sometimes they are even played over several weeks.
