The Great Southwest Officials Association provides basketball referees to most

many in New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi. GSOA officials,
numbering more than 500, are independent contractors working for the coordinator
of officials, Tony Stigliano.
Tony Stigliano assigns officials to the following conferences: Lone Star, American
Southwest, Heartland, Red River, Southern Collegiate Athletic, Texas Eastern, Dallas
Metro, North Texas Junior College, and Western Junior College.
Officials interested in working in the GSOA and those who are already on staff attend
GSOA summer camps to improve their abilities and have their performance evaluated.
