Oregon high school boys basketball: Class 6A-5A State tournament tracker
With the calendar flipped to February, the race for the playoffs in Oregon high school boys basketball is kicking into high gear.
We've taken a look at the 6A and 5A classifications on what it takes to make the postseason and have projected what each field for boys and girls would look like if the playoffs started today.
Class 3A-1A have already frozen their rankings and begin their state tournaments on Feb. 22 in 1A and Feb. 25 in 3A and 2A. You can check out those brackets here.
Class 4A has also frozen their rankings and determined the play-in games before the official state tournament begins next week.
Any ties in standings were broken by looking at head-to-head matchups, then OSAA rankings if head-to-head was inconclusive. Teams were ranked based on league winning percentage.

Swapped Crook County and Milwaukie to avoid Crook County-Redmond league matchup.
Ashland-Eagle Point stays as is despite being a league matchup because the next three lower seed swaps would all create league matchups still.
