Championship Bracket Information

The MPSSAA Basketball Championships will be a single-elimination tournament.   The eight regional champions from each classification will be reseeded into a State Quarterfinal following the last regional championship game.  Seeding for the state quarterfinal will be determined by regular season winning percentage.

  • The eight region champions will be seeded 1-8 based on their regular season winning percentage used to seed each region. Ties among teams in the State Quarterfinals will be first broken by head-to-head competition to determine the higher seed. This applies if all tied teams meet the criteria. If head-to-head does not break the tie, a coin toss will be used to determine the order of seeding.
