I am correct in assuming that the District Tournament (for lack of a better term) will be like this:
#1 hosts #8
#4 hosts #5
#2 hosts #7
#3 hosts #6
Then (hypothetically assuming that all higher seeds win):
#1 would host #4
#2 would host #3
Then (again, assuming the higher seeds win):
#1 would host #2, with the winner being the District Champ and advancing to the quarterfinals?
Obviously, it will get even more confusing with some of the lower seeds winning...I have no idea how the "home" team is decided. Is it just the highest seeded team, or does it matter who has hosted before. For example, what if #6 beats #3, and #2 beats #7...who hosts the next game? #2 because they are the higher seed, or #6 because they had to play their first game on the road.
Just wondering, as this year's playoff system is clear as mud to me!
Higher seed is my guess. I know #1's, provided they keep winning play all games throughout district play at home
It is set up like all the other district tournaments except that instead of the higher seed just getting the home bench and home jerseys due to the tournament being played at one site, the higher seed will get homefield in each round of districts. So say the #1, #5, #6, and #2 move on to round two, then 5 will play at 1 and 6 will play at 2. Say #5 and #2 win, the #2 will host the finals. Higher seed hosts each round until districts is over.
Thanks for clearing that up. I just couldn't find anything on the MSHSAA website about hosting except for the 1st round, quarterfinals, and semifinals.
