Updates from Calgary last night:

Churchill squeaked by McNally
BoB beat Mary's convincingly

Churchill BoB final on Saturday. Should be a good game, but I'm predicting BoB to take it.

Don't sleep on McNally in provincials. Hard core darkhorse.

Mary's is wildly inconsistent. Could be dangerous in provincials, or could go quietly.

south zone update
Magrath earned their spot in the final by beating Raymond. Raymond hung around for quite awhile in that game before Magrath pulled away. Cardston lost to LCI by 3 in the other semi. Cardston had a cold shooting night and LCI took advantage. I'd expect Magrath to beat LCI in the final, but I expected Cardston to beat LCI as well. So, guess we'll wait and see. Cardston should win third to earn their provincial spot. It's likely that they'll face Raymond in the third place game tomorrow as both those teams should win their games today to earn a spot in the bronze medal game.

Mary's missing their starting PG Ijah last night who is their engine on both ends of the floor (got hurt vs Lacombe) but still hung in against BOB and had an open look for 3 to cut it to 4 with under a minute left but missed and lost by 9 so while BOB was up the whole game, and was the better team last night, I wouldn't say convincingly. BOB is big and deep and skilled inside and outside and well deserving of their #1 ranking.

BOB rolled to the Calgary city title this afternoon. Led 49-20 at half and after a valiant effort by SWC in the second half to close the gap to 13 wth 4 minutes left ended up losing by 18. Two young guards from BOB #4 and #10 led the way with 20+ each after that a pretty balanced attack. SWC took too long to get going but battled hard til the end.

I think the seeding was appropriate for the most part. They have to rank based on the whole year of work not just the city/zone playoff positions and I think they did a good job.

1st Round - Going with chalk here. I don't see any upsets happening in first round.
BOB
LCI
Cardston
St. Mary's
Ainlay
Churchill
McNally
Magrath

2nd Round
BOB
Cardston
Ainlay
Magrath

Semis
BOB over Cardston
Ainlay over Magrath

Bronze
Cardston over Magrath

Gold
Ainlay over BOB

Could someone help me understand why Cardston is ranked above LCI? Did LCI not receive the souths 2nds seed and Cardston the 3rd because LCI beat them in the Semis? I do agree that Cardston is the better team and may have had a bad game in Zones, but I don't recall ever seeing something like this in the past. Correct me if I'm wrong, I am just a little confused with how the rankers justified this. Anyone?

Seedings are NOT based solely on the results of zones, nor should they be. It is based off of the body of work throughout the season, albeit zones still have an importance for who makes it and can still affect seeding. Cardston beat LCI 3 times this season while LCI just beat them once in a close game at zones. Cardston clearly has had a stronger season overall so they justified their ranking.

From the ASAA website: "The provincial seeding conference call is not a ranking call. It is the job of the ranking committee to produce the most competitive draw based on the teams that have qualified for provincials and their final ranking standings. The goal is to have a balanced draw that best reflects the entire season for the teams being represented at provincials."
