As reported in the Buffalo News on March 14, 2013.
We are in the middle of March Madness, which means when a horn goes off at the end of a postseason basketball game, things get crazy. In a way similar to college conference title games, high school playoff victories at this time of year mean that you will reach another level of the state tournament, that your season will continue while your opponent's will end.
