H.O.R.S.E. Tourney in the Rec Pool
**ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER FOR IMLEAGUES IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN INTRAMURALS.**
The Intramural H.O.R.S.E. tournament in the Rec Pool will take place on Wednesday, March 7th at 9pm. Please come with your Rowan ID and check in with our Intramural Supervisor in the pool area. All shots must be made from within the confines of the pool itself. Participants will be randomly assigned order based on registration via IM Leagues. The Supervisor will assign the shooting order. The competition will simultaneously include all participants, it will not be a head-to-head format.
The idea of the game is to earn as few letters of the word H.O.R.S.E. as possible, while your opponents try to do the same. Any individual that earns all 5 letters, finishing with E, is eliminated from the competition.
If you make a shot, the next person in line must duplicate the shot, i.e. same distance and kind of shot (lay-up, hook shot, etc.). THE IM SUPERVISOR WILL DETERMINE IF IT IS CLOSE ENOUGH. If missed, you receive a letter. If your opponent calls for a bank shot or no rim, you must duplicate this shot or receive a letter. If a shot is called before the shot is taken the ball must go through the hoop in the manner called for the shot to be "good" (for instance if "Bank" is called, the shot must be made using the backboard or it does not count as a made shot regardless of the outcome). If a discrepancy exists between opponents on a shot, the supervisor will determine if the type of shot was followed closely enough to count.
If you are left handed and your opponent is right handed, you may shoot with your strong hand if your opponent has made a shot with his/her strong hand. However, if your opponent verbalizes “Off Hand” to make a shot with his/her off hand, you must also shoot the shot with your off hand. If you make a shot your opponent made, it counts as nothing and your opponent now has another "open" shot opportunity.
You cannot earn a letter if your opponent misses a shot immediately before you. This is an "open" shot opportunity for you, and if you now make a shot, your opponent must duplicate this shot. If you miss on the "open" shot, your opponent now has the "open" shot.
***If all individuals in the line make the shot, the original shooter that designed the shot does not get a letter and starts over with an “open shot”.
All shots must be made from within the pool itself. No shots taken from outside the pool will be allowed.
