3A West at Lander:

To break the tie between Star Valley and Mountain View, coaches checked record vs. highest team in the Northwest quadrant, or the next highest. Regardless of how the Powell-Lovell tie was broken, both SV and MV lost to Powell, but MV beat Lovell, whereas SV didn't. Thus MV gets the #1 SW seed over SV. This tie was broken, before the Powell-Lovell tie was.

To break the tie between Powell and Lovell, check record vs. the highest team in the southwest quadrant. Coaches had to break the Mountain View-Star Valley tie first. Powell gets the #1 NW seed over Lovell, because the Lady Panthers have a win vs. MV, whereas the Lady Bulldogs don't.

Thursday, March 5:

(#1 SW) Mountain View 45 (#4 NW) Cody 34

(#2 NW) Lovell 51 (#3 SW) Pinedale 32

(#1 NW) Powell 62 (#4 SW) Jackson 25

(#2 SW) Star Valley 58 (#3 NW) Lander 40

Friday, March 6:

Consolation Round:

Cody 62 Pinedale 37 - Pinedale Eliminated.

Lander 52 Jackson 43 - Jackson Eliminated.

Semi-Finals:

Lovell 51 Mountain View 44 - Lovell qualifies for the state tournament.

Powell 42 Star Valley 35 - Powell qualifies for the state tournament.

Saturday, March 7:

Mountain View 45 Lander 36 - Lander Eliminated. Mountain View qualifies for the state tournament.

Star Valley 53 Cody 47 - Cody Eliminated. Star Valley qualifies for the state tournament.
