CIF Rule regarding number of games

So I read that CIF has a 20 game season stipulation for boys basketball.

I am under the impression that for teams that are in a 6 school league that this typically is partitioned this way.

10 league games (2 rounds against 5 teams due to home and away games)
4 non-league games (chosen by the coach - not sure by what criteria - proximity, level of competition, prior arrangements).
6 games at tournaments (where each tournament counts for 2 games, with the understanding that most tournaments you actually play 4).

True total is then 26 games per season PRIOR to playoffs.

My question is how are some teams playing 28-29 games?

How does a 5th tournament game (played as a friendly count)?

How does playing international team count?

How does playing out of state games/invitationals count?

Can a coach conceivably schedule 30-35 games before playoffs?
