Class 4A Boys Basketball Breakdown

Boys Basketball Class 4A State Tournament Projections

Boys Basketball Class 4A State Tournament Projections

For my projections I am using the CHSAA Seeding and Selection Index.  I am going to be predicting the League Champions and then seeding the bracket using the Seeding Index.  I am also going to pick the 8 teams I think make it to the Great 8.

Class 4A

  • A total of 32 teams will qualify for the single elimination bracket.
  • League champions earn an automatic berth in the playoffs as long as they win their league outright.  Each league must have a minimum of 5 teams in it for an automatic berth.
  • Maxpreps and RPI will run through the regular season.
  • The remaining teams will be added (up to 32) based on the CHSAA Seeding & Selection Index (50% Maxpreps/50% RPI)
  • Seeding will be done by CHSAA Seeding & Selection Index.  Seeds 1-24 are true seeded except to try to avoid league matchups in the first round only (teams may be moved up or down 1 spot).  Teams 25-32 may then be moved based upon geography and league matchups. 
  • Higher seeds will host (First round until the great 8).
  • Great 8 games, Final 4, and State Championship will be played at a netural site selected by CHSAA.
