Girls Basketball Class 2A Regional and State Projections/Predictions

For the Projections I am using the RPI to seed the field, but I am picking the District winners using my District Predictions.  There is plenty that could still change especially with the RPI.  I am also picking the 8 teams I think will qualify for State Using this Regional Layout.

Class 2A

A regional tournament will be played in Class 2A.

  • The 8 District shall qualify a specified number of teams to the regional tournament as follows: 4 Teams-District 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8. 5 Teams-District 5, 3 Teams-District 3.
  • The District Champions shall be seeded 1-8 based on RPI and shall host the regional tournaments.
  • The remainder of the teams shall be seeded 9-32 by RPI avoiding first round district matchups.
  • RPI Seeds 25-32 may be moved to accommodate geography if it benefits the entire bracket.
  • The 8 regional winners shall advance to the state tournament.
  • 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.

District Qualifiers

District 1: Del Norte (7), Sanford (11), Center (32), Sargent (30)

The semifinals feature Del Norte vs Center and Sanford vs Sargent.  It looks like we may be on a collision course for part 3 of Del Norte vs Sanford.  I am picking Del Norte and Sanford to advance to the District Championship.  I am picking Del Norte over Sanford in the District Championship and Center over Sargent in the third-place game.  All 4 teams have qualified for Regionals.

District 2: Holyoke (1), Yuma (25), Wray (14), Sedgwick County (16)

The semifinals feature Holyoke vs Wray and Yuma vs Sedgwick County.  I think the semifinals should be very competitive and fun to watch.  I am picking Holyoke and Yuma to win and advance to the District Championship.  I am picking Holyoke over Yuma in the District Championship and Wray over Sedgwick County in the third-place game.  All 4 teams have qualified for Regionals.

District 3: Ignacio (13), Dolores (51), Mancos (54)

District 4: Limon (2), Denver Christian (17), Byers (29), Lotus School (23)

The Championship is set between Limon and Denver Christian.  Winner hosts a Region and loser will hit the road.  In the third-place game we will see Lotus School face Byers.  I think both games should be interesting games.  I am picking Limon over Denver Christian in the District Championship and I am going Byers over Lotus School in the third-place game.

District 5: Meeker (3), Soroco (18), Hotchkiss (15), Hayden (20), Paonia (31)

The District 6 Championship is set between Rye and Rocky Ford.  Both teams were challenged in the Semifinals and now face each other for a second time.  The third-place game features Holly vs Swink and should also be a solid game. I am picking Rye over Rocky Ford to win the District Championship and Swink over Holly in the third-place game.
