MPSSAA releases hoops draw

February 21, 2005

The MPSSAA playoff draws for the boys and girls basketball region tournaments were announced Sunday. The top four teams in each region were seeded 1-4 based on regular-season winning percentages, except for the Class 1A West regions, which each were split into two sections, with the top two teams in each section seeded 1-2 based on records. The remaining teams in each region and section were seeded on the bracket by a blind draw.

All region games will be played at the site of the higher seed throughout the tournament. The option to play games at neutral sites remains.

The region schedule for boys basketball is: First-round games, Friday; quarterfinals, Feb. 28; semifinals, March 2; and finals, March 4.

The region schedule for girls basketbal is: First-round games, Saturday; quarterfinals, March 1; semifinals, March 3; and finals, March 5.
