Girls and Boys Basketball Tournament Seeding Meetings Slated for Feb 12/13 and Feb 19/20

Seeding meetings for the Girls and Boys Basketball Tournaments will take place February 12 and 13 (Girls) and February 19/20 (Boys)

The WIAA will be using a formula for seeding teams, with tournament brackets scheduled to be released February 14(Girls) and February 21(Boys)

Doing away with the previous procedure of using high school coaches to seed each regional and/or sectional, the new computer seeding will spit out teams in seed order for regionals with the girls’ brackets released February 14, 2022 and the boys’ released on February 21, 2022.

Electronic seeding will be based on the following factors:

1) Own team winning percentage;

2) Opponents’ winning percentage;

3) Opponents’ Opponent’s winning percentage;

4) Defeated Opponents’ winning percentage;

5) Defeated Opponents’ Opponent’s winning percentage;

6) Own winning percentage vs. teams in regional/sectional grouping.

While the above criteria will be used to determine seeding, the exact formula/weight of each factor will be not be released by the WIAA.
