(1-26-20) Its that time of year as the IHSAA held the 2020 state girls basketball sectional tournament draws. In Indiana there is no seeding system which makes for some interesting match-ups.
Class 3A at Mississinewa
Bellmont opens sectional play in Mississinewa when it takes on a 13-6 Eastern Comets team. A win would pit them against a Heritage-Oak Hill winner, Bellmont beat Heritage during the regular season 46-19, Oak Hill is the defending 2A state champion.
Class 3A at Yorktown
Jay County gets a bye into the semifinals and will play the winner of the New Castle-Winchester game. The Patriots beat New Castle this season 64-54 and lost to Winchester 72-51.
Class 2A at Bluffton
At Bluffton in the 2A Sectionals Eastside seems to be a favorite, they have already beat Adams Central 41 – 39, Churubusco 55 – 32 and South Adams 56 – 27 this season. The Blazers also have a win over ACAC champion Woodlan 42 – 37.
Class A at Union City
Union City will host the Sectional 56 Class A tournament, they open the tournament against Randolph Southern, who they beat this season 64-35. If they win game 1 they would play Tri, who beat them earlier this month 70-60.
The Indians also have a win this year over Cambridge City Lincoln 75 – 27.
