How is the determination of which regions play each other in post season made?

James, if the Wasatch/D Hills game is not competitive (within 10 pts) you have my permission to never cover another WHS game. Good luck to the other Region 10 teams... let's help the folks in Region 9 plead for a different assignment next year.

It used to be rotated. So last year 9 played 10 and 11 played 12. This year it should have been something like 9 plays 11 and 10 plays 12. And then the year after that would be 9/12, 10/11. And that's how it rotated. For some reason this year (travel maybe?) they voted to keep 9 playing 10 like last year. Kind of strange, but whatever.

@TDowEsq

It won't be region 9 pleading for a new assignment next year. Just all the new small schools that don't like realignment.

I know that a couple of the Region 10 schools questioned UHSAA about the curious repeat of last years bracket assignments.... UHSAA assured the curious Northerners, that the brackets last year worked well (at least for region 9) and not to worry their little Northern minds about the apparent scheduling oddity. Seems more than curious to me. Notwithstanding this little curiosity, a Northern team will probably win the 3A tournament... it is just unlikely to be a Region 10 team (can you say "Morgan"?).

James, on behalf of the Wasatch team and fans.... we'd like to apologize for the Wasps ruining your 3A bracket. Please see the comment posted at your 3A Boys Tournament Capsule - so that you can see a more accurate handicapping of the Desert Hills/WHS game (which predicted a close game and a WHS victory tonight in the Nest). The reason I picked against an excellent Thunder team was because I am a Wasatch fan. However I did have a few facts on my side. D Hills had lost 2 of 3 to non-tourney teams, they had to travel a long way for a road game against a surging Wasatch team. The road is hard on any team, just ask OKC or ASU, and that ultimately made your DHHS blowout prediction... well, wrong.
Now on to a neutral floor. The Wasps will have a tough assignment the next game against a good Spanish Fork side... perhaps we Wasatch fans/team should hope you pick against us again. It gave our coach good material for the pre-game speech : )
