The post-season of high school basketball is here for small schools around Wyoming. Their season comes down to one game.

Unlike past years, where the regional tournaments were double-elimination and spread over three days with all eight teams on one side of the state in the same venue, this year is different. With COVID, it was decided that regionals would be broken down into their quadrants with boys and girls separated to adhere to the safest protocols towards making sure the games were played.

Here’s how it works. The No. 1 seed in a quadrant will play No. 4 and the No. 2 will play No. 3 on Thursday, Feb. 25. The winners of those two games will qualify for the state tournament. The loser’s season is done. The two winners will play for a regional quadrant title. Those two teams will also advance to a regional seeding four-team tournament on Saturday, Feb. 27. The winners of the regional quad (i.e. NW and SW) will play each other for the regional title with the winner grabbing the No. 1 seed and the loser the No. 2 seed from that side of the state. The two teams that lost the regional quad title game will play each other for the No. 3 and 4 seeds.

This is the schedule and where boys’ teams are playing this weekend. The schedule is subject to change.
