Division II, Section IV Tournament

The top seeds hate sectional tournaments but the lower seeds love them.

Because a section champion earns an automatic berth to the state tournament, the sectional tournaments serve as a second chance for teams on the edge – teams such as No. 27 Tucson and No. 31 Marana Mountain View.

If the season ended Thursday morning, then No. 10 Catalina Foothills and No. 13 Salpointe would have very little to worry about. The Falcons would be the section champion and both teams would earn a home game in the first round of the Division II state playoffs and Tucson and Mountain View would have turned in their uniforms. But the season is not over.

This is why we call it February Frenzy…..
