On seedings

Well, well, well.

The LHSAA has its first girls basketball playoff with teams seeded 1-32.

And the reaction was, well, about what you would expect. Teams that got good seeds (Southwood, Parkway, etc.) thought the system worked just fine. Teams that weren't so fortunate (Evangel), thought the system stunk.

If you're looking just at paper, you've got to figure Evangel coach Wendell Delaney has a point about being seeded behind a John Curtis team that finished second in its district.

Unfortunately, we'll probably never know if that district with Curtis and St. James is so tough that both of those teams are thought to be better than Evangel.

Here's one thing you can count on: There is probably little sympathy for Evangel around the rest of the LHSAA.

Hopefully this seeding has nothing to do with football.

The beauty of the playoffs is we'll find out how good all of these teams are. It's just now Evangel's road is a little tougher than maybe Delaney and his team thought it would be.
