    No surprises in AAA boys really. Tough first round games for GM and Girard. I’m sure they’d much rather play Meadville than Farrell or Sharon.

    My predictions:

    Girard over Sharon by 8
    SV over Meadville by 4
    Farrell over GM by 9
    Hickory over East by 16

  2. Tom Reisenweber says:

    More disrespect for GM lol. I don’t get it. Make sure to check out the live blog at 6!

    Thanks,
    Tom

  3. tom says:

    surprised no play in games anywhere Tom

  4. D.T. says:

    Tom,
    What happened to Erie First in A?

  5. TeamSteam says:

    Tough field in boys A.

  6. Tom Reisenweber says:

    DT,
    I will get an official reason from D-10. I heard there was a paperwork issue.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  7. Tom Reisenweber says:

    tom,
    Yeah I thought there’d be a few, especially after three last year.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  8. Venangocountyhoops says:

    Franklin migh have biggest gripe this year. Not saying they should be in but they have one of the best arguments since 2 teams have same record ( one they split with) and 1 team has worse record. But looks like they went with Sharon since they had a better second half.

  9. BBall Fan says:

    Geez, get off GM’s jock already…….What did you want for them? They are playing a home game like always. I sure hope either Farrell or Hickory takes care of them.

  10. Jon Bates says:

    Tom,

    Any idea why AAA will play the first round game on Wednesday? It seems like it was always Thursday (and there are no Thurs games this year). Also, does that mean they could play the following Monday?

    Trying to figure out work schedules!

  11. chris ward says:

    So gald to see that Seneca girls got in. They earned it. Congrats to coach Carter and the girls!!! I have a little more faith in d 10 now

  12. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Jon,
    It might be site availability than anything. It did confuse me too but Edinboro and SRU might not be available Thursday.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  13. Joel Snyder says:

    1. How do we know the seedings?
    2. How do we know who plays who in the semifinals?

  14. Tom Reisenweber says:

    I believe GM plays Girard in the D-10 championship. It just surprised me that they’ve been one of the best teams in D-10 this season and someone picks them to lose right away.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  15. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Tough final two weeks for the Knights. Go from second place to out of the playoffs with three tough road losses.

  16. mchusike says:

    think you for puting iroquois in they wii play hard

  17. Joel Snyder says:

    Is there a website where I can get an actual bracket?

  18. bballman32 says:

    So how will they explain giving the Saegertown girls the 8 seed as a region champ? I thought Region champs were supposed to get the top 3 seeds. Conneaut was the only team to finish above them and is AAA. Talk about a screw job. District 10 is a joke.

  19. Tom Reisenweber says:

    bballman32,
    That really confuses me. Not sure why Saegertown is the 8 unless they decided that after Region 4 got 4 teams in that you separate the four and just match teams up.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  20. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Joel,
    I lined up the brackets in the order they play in the semifinals. Seeds aren’t published by D-10.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  21. Bob says:

    What’s the point of Iroquois/Sharpsville getting in? Iroquois isn’t even a .500 team and Sharpsville barely is….really no reason for either of them to be in.

  22. bballman32 says:

    They could have switched Saegertown and Mercer and done it the right way. Why even have seeding guidelines, which they have posted on the district10 site, when you ignore them. So much for region winners get the top 3 seeds.

  23. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Need eight teams for the bracket.

  24. D.T. says:

    tom,
    Are 3 teams from A boys moving on to state tourney? if so a team under .500 will move on to sate playoffs. A little ridiculous.

    Saegertown girls being an 8 seed is a surprise.

    the one play in game that i seen deserving would have been tom pyle’s north east team with just the close games they were in with higher seeds and their overall record. but their destiny was in their own hands in the last week.

  25. Bob says:

    Why can’t you just go with 6? It’s not like they send 8 to the state playoffs…waste of time imo

  26. Bob says:

    By waste of time I mean it waters down regular season.

  27. D.T. says:

    tom,
    live blog at 6?

  28. Kay says:

    Why no play in game with Iroquois and North East?

  29. deb says:

    Glad the Seneca girl’s basketball team got in. They worked their butts off this season.. Let’s Go Lady Bobcats!!!

  30. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Bob,
    Sending 3 to PIAA is probably why they did eight.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  31. Tom Reisenweber says:

    DT,
    Yes, three move on in A boys. D-10 should give one of those spots back lol.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  32. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Kay,
    I think they went off Iroquois beating NE twice this year.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  33. John M says:

    Triple A Boys will be the most competitive bracket.

  34. John M says:

    Tom why Sharon over Franklin ?

  35. Tom Reisenweber says:

    John M,
    Not really sure. My best guess, and in no way is this official, is Sharon won the second meeting and is playing much better than Franklin lately.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  36. John M says:

    Feel bad for Franlin`s young men,should have let them decide the issue on the court, District Ten is very inconsitent in their decision making process.

  37. Brian says:

    Tom, who are the district 10 officials that decide on these brackets? What areas of the district do they represent? Is there anyway to list them? There are no easy games in the district AA girls bracket, but giving the Saegertown girls an 8 seed is not just. It seems like the rules change depending who you are from year to year!!!

  38. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Brian,
    There is a D-10 exec committee made up of D-10 members. I don’t know for sure who is on that committee.

    I think there might be some movement on the GM-Saegertown situation. I contacted D10 about the mistake of two region champions playing each other with Saegertown and General McLane and haven’t heard back in a few hours. Maybe they are adjusting the bracket?

    Thanks,
    Tom

  39. Bballman32 says:

    The members of the committee are listed on the district 10 website. If they don’t change the AA girls bracket they need replaced.

  40. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Bballman,
    Not all D-10 Committee members are on the basketball committee just an FYI.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  41. bballfan says:

    Surprise, surprise…GM gets a home game…again.

  42. Susan says:

    Once again District 10 committee decides to insult Mercyhurst athletics. Why do both the men’s and women’s basketball teams have to play first round games when each team clearly deserves a bye? An absolute shame.

  43. golfpro says:

    bbfan where would you have put the gm sharon game, there are 3 gyms big enough for a aaa double header. Slippery Rock, Edinboro or Gannon. Every year we have to listen too people whine about them. Until you people find a alternative keep quiet.

  44. sandman says:

    Susan: There are 8 teams in each field. Why would anyone get a bye in an 8 team field?

  45. NoZoneD says:

    Why doesnt SV and Meadville play at GM highschool?

  46. Peggy says:

    One thing to remember on locations of games, they can only put games at places that are willing to host. Not all schools want to do that so you have northern schools traveling to Slippery Rock & southern teams traveling to GM & Edinboro

  47. Susan says:

    Sandman,
    A friend recently explained the committee’s reasoning to me, but I still cannot help but feel that the two Laker teams were dealt an unfair hand.

  48. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Not sure GM people would like to work a game instead of watching their own team.

  49. AW says:

    pretty sad state of affairs in boys A BB
    playoffs when nearly every team below .500…
    CP in playoffs 12 games under .500? wow!!!!

  50. Guest17 says:

    harbor creek girls are a team in the making. the next 2 years they will be very, very competitive. wouldn’t doubt they compete with mercyhurst, NE, GM, and give villa
    a run for their money. just look at their JV girls stats last year, impressive. can’t wait.
