The top line in each regional game will be the host site for these matchups. You can find the bracket here: (https://www.maxpreps.com/tournament/GPeavUOaEeqAzqREozo6lw/9uLCJkOaEeqAzqREozo6lw/girls-basketball-winter-19-20/2020-girls-basketball-state-tournament-class-1a.htm)


Instead of March Madness, let’s call it February Foolishness:

Toughest Path: Holmes County would have to (this excludes any major upsets) get by teams ranked #4 in the regional semis, #3 or #7 in the regional finals, #2 or #5 state semis, and #6 to win the whole thing.

Most Eye-Popping Stat: The top half of the bracket has the top 5 teams in it according to the rankings.

First-Round Upset Alert: Ponce De Leon is on the bottom of their matchup as the away team, but I think they can get it done versus Jay as an “upset”.

Final 4 Picks: Holmes County, Wildwood, Port St. Joe, Trenton
