How do they seed the state tournament? Is it based off final rankings or do they take into account the games played after the final rankings come out?
They take in to account what teams came in on the winning side and the losing side. Seeds 1-4 normally come out of the winners of the Friday night area championships. Then they seed the Saturday consolations by their rankings and then match the lowest consolation winner with the highest champion, and so on. Normally doesn't change unless the first round match ups have teams from the same area that have already played each other in playoffs, then they'll switch some things around.
