Eyes were on Garden Spot as results of the Spartans’ Basketball games would finalize the basketball brackets (with mathematical power ranking contributions from Lebanon County). The Spartan’s split with the boys winning and the girls falling short. So the basketball playoffs look like this:
Girls Basketball Playoffs Presented by Fulton Bank
Play-In Game: Thursday, 2/8 at 6 pm at Warwick, Cedar Crest (1-3) vs Donegal (2-3)
Quarterfinals: Saturday, 2/10
Lebanon Catholic (3-3) at Manheim Township (1-1), 6 pm
Northern Lebanon (3-2) at Lampeter-Strasburg (2-1), 2:30 pm
Play-In Game Winner at Lancaster Catholic (3-1), 7 pm
Elizabethtown (1-2) vs Solanco (2-2) at Ephrata MS, 6 pm
If Solanco beats Garden Spot, then Solanco is the #2 seed and Donegal is the #3 seed (Head to Head vs. Manheim Central).
If Solanco loses to Garden Spot, then there is a 4-way tie for 2nd place between Solanco, Donegal, GS and MC.
Head to Head – All four teams are 3-3 vs. each other
Record vs. Section Champion – All four teams were 0-2 vs. Lampeter Strasburg
District 3 Power Rating :
As of this moment, the power ratings are Solanco (0.662294), Donegal (0.575096), Garden Spot (0.567929), MC (0.545691). District 3 confirms that mathematically, Donegal, GS and MC cannot overtake Solanco regardless of tonight’s GS/Solanco result. So, Solanco is the #2 seed in Section 2.
The #3 seed will depend on who has the next highest Power Rating. As of right now, Donegal holds a slight edge over Garden Spot. However, Garden Spot still has that one last game tonight vs. Solanco. After the result of the Garden Spot vs Solanco game has been figured in to the power ratings the # 3 seed will be determined.
Head to Head: Northern Lebanon and Lebanon Catholic split during the season
Record vs. Section Champion: Northern Lebanon and Lebanon Catholic were 0-2 vs. Lancaster Catholic
District 3 Power Rating – as of this moment, NL (0.668524) has a slightly higher power rating than Lebanon Catholic (0.658837). The result of the GS/Solanco game will have an impact – albeit slightly – on Northern Lebanon’s final power rating. After the result of the Garden Spot vs Solanco game has been figured in to the power ratings the #2 seed and # 3 seed will be determined.
