BOONE - The Iowa High School Athletic Association has announced the District assignments for The 2009 boys' basketball tournaments.
There will be 16 districts in each class, and the district champions will meet in eight sub-state games for the right to advance to the State Tournament.
Teams within each district will be seeded, using regular season win/loss records
(games 5-15) or games played through Saturday, January 24, 2009. The team with the best winning percentage will receive the highest seed in that district. In case of ties, a tie-breaker has been established.
The top two seeds in each district will be placed in opposite brackets. Once the #1 and #2 seeds are assigned opposite brackets, districts will be split by geography, and teams in each bracket will be paired using the seeding procedure.
The highest seeded teams will have the opportunity to be the host school for 1st, 2nd, and District semi-final round games.
Both the District final and Substate final will be played on a neutral court.
First-round District Tournament games will begin on Monday, Feb. 16, 2009, with the District finals played on Tuesday, Feb. 24, or Thursday, Feb. 26, and the Substate finals on Saturday, Feb. 28, or Monday, March 2.
