Finally, all of the girls basketball brackets for Friday’s the regional round are complete.
There were some play-in and/or seeding games yesterday.
I am devoting tomorrow’s edition of Post-Ups, my weekly blog notebook, to the regional pairings, so be sure to check back late in the morning or early in the afternoon.
For now, though, I want to link you to those brackets, and you can find them in two places. First, check the WIAA website here. Or, you can go to the site I’ve been using the last few weeks, the Washington Prep Athletics Network, here. The nice thing about that one is you can also find the brackets with results from all of the district tournaments, too.
Friday’s games are all loser-out. The winners advance to the Final Eight, which for 4A and 3A are in the Tacoma Dome. The 2A and 1A tourneys are in the Yakima Valley SunDome, with 2B and 1B in the Spokane Arena.
The draws for those tournaments (for girls and boys) are Sunday at the WIAA office in Renton (2B and 1B at 11 a.m., 2A and 1A at 1 p.m. and 4A and 3A at 3 p.m.). The only draw criteria used there is that the two teams out of the same regional are placed in opposite half brackets, meaning they won’t play each other in the quarterfinal round.
