: : : : Good morning
: : : : Does anyone know when the state playoff schedule will be released? Do they make the pairings today (sunday)? i wonder how the teams are seeded? first time with this so im excited and looking forward to the state wide tourney and schedule. thanks
: : : I think they are announced today around 4.
: : Thanks Mr Troy! Im wondering - is it possible, that some of the teams could end up playing a team they already defeated in the playoffs? I would assume not, but, i have no clue. thanks
: The answer is yes, some teams can play each other again in state playoffs.
Not likely until the 3rd-4th game of the state playoffs, though it can happen in the second round (or even first, if the teams didn't meet in a championship game). The committee tries to put teams who faced each other on opposite sides of the regional bracket.
Last year's Division 5 field included the City Section champions from Divisions 3,4,& 5, and the D2 runner-up from LA City. Wonder what surprises there could be this season...
