Power Pack: RI High School Boys’ Basketball: February 24th

Monday, February 24, 2014

 

Entering the final week of the regular season, RIIL Boys' Basketball is about to begin anew with Divisional Tournaments beginning the first week of March and the Open Tournament following those.

For those wondering, the Top 10 teams in each Division make the Divisional Tournaments, with the Top 6 teams each getting a bye and the 7th place team playing the 10th place team and the 8th place team playing the 9th place team in the first round in each Divisional Tournament.

At the conclusion of the Divisional Tournaments, the Top 16 teams in the RIIL Power Rankings will qualify for the Open Tournament. RIIL rules state Division 1 league and playoff wins are worth 1 point each, Division 2 league and playoff wins are worth 0.8 points each, and Division 3 league and playoff wins are worth 0.6 points each.

With an eye on the upcoming tournaments and the week ahead, here's the updated Power Pack.
