NCHSAA delays basketball playoff seeding until Sunday; PCHS girls likely in, boys likely out

Due to the wintry weather forecast to affect the state over the next several days, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association has postponed the seeding date for the 2020 state basketball playoffs until Sunday.

The NCHSAA said the decision was made in an effort to allow systems and conferences that become impacted by the weather to complete tie-breaker or conference tournament games as necessary and able.

Seeding will not begin prior to 1 p.m. on Sunday, and finalized brackets can be expected sometime Sunday evening.

Polk County’s girls are expected to receive an at-large bid to the 1A girls tourney. The Wolverines are currently ranked 28th in the Max Preps Adjusted Power Ratings, and WRAL’s HighSchoolOT.com has the Wolverines projected as the 18th seed in the 1A West bracket.

The news isn’t quite as good for the Polk County boys, who are ranked 90th in the latest MAPR and aren’t projected to receive a playoff berth.
