MHSAA state tourney format stays the same

By NEMS Daily Journal

The Final Four format for the annual MHSAA state basketball tournament will remain the same for the 2013-14 school year.
A proposal that would allow eight teams – instead of four – in each classification to advance to the state tournament failed on a second vote at the MHSAA’s April executive meeting.
District 1 secretary Larry Williams said another proposal, which involved eight 1-4A teams and six 5-6A teams advancing, failed on a first vote.
“That proposal had a lot of merit,” he said. “I could see it being brought back up.”
