It's been a topsy-turvy last couple of weeks for basketball across the state with the crazy winter weather that completely shut down everything.
With that, basketball - both boys and girls - was held up for the most part with some games able to play. But to that end, there is quite a snafu of scheduling alignment.
Some of the girls brackets are already into the Regional Finals. Some of them just got down with the Area Round. Things will normalize, but things are definitely out of whack.
