CIF-SS Boys Division IV-A Bracket:
First Round & Bracket--(Feb. 16, 2003)

This is a 32-team bracket with so many byes that it actually could have been a 16-team bracket with just some wild card games....either way, there will be 22 teams actually competing in Division IV-A when it's all said and done.   The top four seeds are No. 1 Verbum Dei, No. 2 Campbell Hall, No. 3 St. Margaret's and No. 4 Kilpatrick.  

And proving that someone on the seeding committee has a real sense of humor, for those who had to wade through the messages on the board here at SoCalHoops for the past few weeks trying to get past all of the arguing whether Western Christian or some other school deserved a better spot in the bracket, check out Western Christian's second round game against Fairmont Prep, which is the result of both teams getting first round byes.  A coin flip will settle the location.

All games with the exception of the final round will start at 7:30 p.m. unless another time is mutually agreed upon and clearance is received from the CIF-SS Office.  Public coin flips will be held in the lobby of the CIF-SS Office at 9:00 a.m. the day following each playoff game [these coin flips will determine subsquent sites after the first round, i.e., which school will be the host].  Coin flips will be available after 9:30 a.m. and we'll try to keep everyone posted with them here.
