Regional and State Projections Girls Basketball Class 3A

We are really pushing to the end of the year and things are getting much better.

Class 3A

With no Regional Tournament for Class 3A the teams are fighting for a Top 32 RPI or as stated below.

  • Seven District, each qualifying two teams to the state bracket, with the remaining 18 teams determined by RPI.
  • The qualifier advance to a 32-team regional/state bracket where the district champions if ranked in the Top 16 of the RPI plus the next highest RPI finisher will host regions.
  • The seven district champions, if ranked in the Top 16 of RPI and the 1st highest RPI qualifier will be placed on the bracket in order of 1-8. A district champion not ranked in the Top 16 of the final RPI will be placed on the bracket but, will not be a top 8 seed and will not host a region.  (If a district champion is not in the Top 16 RPI, then the next highest remaining RPI will host).  The committee may use the following criteria to seed the final pairing: Final RPI rankings, previous district match-ups, head to head competition, and common opponents.
  • Seeds 25-32 may be moved to accommodate geographical considerations.
  • The bracket will not be re-seeded going into the state tournament.
  • The state tournament shall feature a modified consolation bracket. Teams losing on Thursday will not advance to Friday.
