: : Can girls play the nightcap games? Shouldn't the best home teams play last?
: I don't know if it is worth fighting, but technically it is a Title IX issue if the girls team ALWAYS plays in front of the boys team. They are suppose to alternate times (allowing both to play at the prime hour), but some schools/ teams are willing to look the other way because it can be demoralizing when part of the crowd gets up and leaves during warm ups or early in the first quarter. Sometimes when you fight for something that is the letter of the law it has some unintended consequences (less crowd attendance) so you may want to weigh those before going to battle.
This is a good topic and something that should be brought up. It is a title 9 offense. For a schools where the girls' team is stronger and more supported by the school community than the boys, the girls should have the prime time slot.
