One thought on “About Bluegrass Basketball

  1. You revitalize the Sweet 16 by going to 4 classes. 0-312, 313-681, 682-1108, 1109 and up. Have 4 sections per class. Playoffs to get down to a final 4 per class. Those 16 make up the Sweet 16. Each class final 4 is part of the Sweet 16 . Have a state champ per class. Each of those class champs now playoff to be Sweet 16 champ. More teams playing for a state title . More fan bases involved and still have that chance of little Cinderella winning it all. Takes nothing away from Sweet 16, just adds to it.
