Chapel Hill, N.C. — The N.C. High School Athletic Association has delayed the seeding of the basketball state playoffs until 1 p.m. on Sunday due to the threat of wintry weather.
Playoff brackets were originally scheduled to be released on Saturday afternoon.
“This decision was made in an effort to allow systems and conferences that become impacted by the weather to complete tie-breaker or conference tournament games as necessary and able,” the NCHSAA said in a press release.
With snow possible for a large portion of North Carolina, the one-day delay may allow conferences the opportunity to complete conference tournaments and play tie-breaker games on Saturday if needed.
Conference tournaments are scheduled for this week throughout the state. The tournaments will impact the seeding of the state playoffs and some conference tournaments will be used to break ties in the conference standings.
The NCHSAA said finalized basketball brackets can be expected on Sunday evening.
