Oregon high school girls 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 qualifications for Class 6A and 5A on what it takes to make the postseason and have projected what each field, boys and girls, would look like if the playoffs started today.
Class 3A, 2A and 1A have already frozen their rankings and placed teams for their state tournaments. You can check out those brackets here.
4A has also frozen its rankings and determined its 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.
Here are the projected fields:
