Boys Basketball Class 1A Regional and State Projections/Predictions

We have 4 weekends left until Districts and we take are first look at the Regional and State Tournament.   Teams qualify for Regionals by finishing in the Top 3 or in the Top 2 of their District.  I am making weekly League Predictions and using those to predict the teams who qualify.  Plenty will still change!  I am also picking the 8 teams I think qualify for the state tournament as well.

Class 1A

A regional tournament will be played in Class 1A.

  • 8 district each qualifying two or three to three regionals.
  • Identical Format for Boys & Girls
School Year Region 1 Region 2 Region 3
2019-2020 1 & 6 4, 5, 8 2, 3, 7
2020-2021 1 & 8 4, 5, 7 2, 3, 6

 

  • The #1 and #2 seed from district 1 & 6 will be paired for the 2019-2020, while the #1, #2, and #3 seeds from District 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 will advance to a regional site.
  • In Region 2 (4,5,8) the nine qualifying teams will be seeded by RPI, avoiding any previous district match-ups. (This was how it was done in 2019)
  • In Region 3 (2,3,7) the District Champions will receive byes and one team from each District will be placed in each bracket.  (This was how it was done in 2019)
  • In Region 1 District 1 and District 6 #1s will play the other Districts #2s.  Region 1 receives 2 state qualifiers, Regions 2 and 3 receive 3 state qualifiers each.
  • Each region shall jointly determine its regional playoff site.
  • After the Final 8 teams have been determined, the teams will be re-seeded based on the following: The 8 regional winners advance to the state tournament where they will be seeded by a committee, made up of administrative representatives. The committee may use the following criteria to seed the final pairings: Final RPI rankings, previous district matchups, head to head competition and common opponents.
  • Class 1A Great 8 will play a consolation bracket.
