Inclement weather continues to wreak havoc on postseason prep basketball.
All games scheduled for Friday and Saturday have been pushed back until Monday, with Class 4A having to shorten its bi-district tournament.
The 4A Wes-King Bi-District Tournament dropped a round on the winner’s and loser’s sides of the bracket for both boys and girls.
Girls teams were able to get in their first-round elimination matchups Thursday, but all four boys games scheduled for Friday have been moved to Monday. Girls quarterfinal matchups are scheduled to be played Monday as well.
Boys and girls teams will now qualify for state regionals with a quarterfinal victory. Losers of the ensuing semifinal matchups will be seeded Nos. 3 and 4 for state regionals according to state RPI rankings.
The tournaments’ No. 1 and No. 2 seeds will still be on the line in the title games, currently scheduled for Feb. 16 at North Creek High School.
Losers of the quarterfinal tilts will play in loser-out games, with the winners of those elimination contests meeting in a fifth-place game to determine the bi-district’s final berth to state regionals.
Class 3A District 1 Tournament games are still set to be played at the home court of the higher-seeded teams Monday.
First-round Class 2A tournament tilts are also to be played at the home gym of all higher-seeded teams except Anacortes, which is currently renovating its gymnasium.
The Class 1A tournament, which has already been restructured, plays boys and girls championship and third-place games Monday. Title games are set for Mount Vernon High School and third-place games will be held at Mount Vernon Christian High School.
No Class 2B or 1B playoff games were scheduled for Friday or Saturday.
In all, 24 postseason games involving area teams are slated for Monday.
