Here is some food for thought on the new playoff divisions

Whatever your feelings are about these new divisions the proof from the numbers is that they have made it much more competitive in 1st round play (Girls Basketball Round of 32).

Overall 1st round games in 2016 - Margin of Victory - 23.8
Overall 1st round games in 2017 - Margin of Victory - 16.4

2016 1st round games decided by single digits - 31 games out of 159 (19%)
2017 1st round games decided by single digits - 44 games out of 120 (37%)

2016 1st round games decided by 40 or more points - 27 games out of 159 (17%)
2017 1st round games decided by 40 or more points - 7 out of 120 games (6%)

2016 1st round games decided by more than 50 points - 10 games out of 159 (6%)
2017 1st round games decided by more than 50 points - 0

Is the system perfect . . . . of course not, but if you name it competitive balance the numbers are showing that you are getting closer to your goal.
