Class 1A Girls Basketball Regional and State Tournament Predictions/Projections Week 12

I am using my Final District Predictions article to come up with the teams and not the current standings.  For Region 2 and 3 they will be seeded by RPI avoiding district matchups in the first round.  Unless I hear different this is what the bulletin states. The RPI was pulled for these Predictions on 2/21 @9am before any District games were played. For Regionals the RPI will not include any District Tournament Games. The RPI I posted on 2/21 was before District play kicked off. Thanks to Kevin Shaffer at Coloradopreps.com for getting all the small details figured out.

Here is the Link to the RPI I posted on 2/21:

How to Qualify for Regionals and State

8 District each qualify 2 or 3 teams to three regionals.  The three regionals are posted below

Region 1Region 2Region 3
District 1 & 8District 4, 5, 7District 2, 3, 6

The #1 and #2 seeds from Districts 1 and 8 will be paired, while the #1, #2, and #3 seeds from Districts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 will advance to a regional site.  In Region 2 (4,5,7) and Region 3 (2, 3, 6), the nine qualify teams will be seeded by RPI avoiding any previous district matchups.  In Region 1, District 1 and 8 #1s will play each other districts #2.  Region 1 receives 2 state qualifiers, Region 2 & 3 receive three state qualifiers each.

After the Final 8 teams have been determined the teams will be re-seeded base on the following: The eight regional winners advance to the state tournament where they will be seeded by seeding criteria approved in a committee, made up of administrative representatives.  The committee may use the following criteria to seed the final pairings: final RPI, previous district matchup’s, head-to-head competition, and common opponents.

A consolation bracket will be played in the Great 8.
