Calling all coaches

All 124 Class 4A boys’ and girls’ basketball coaches — 62 each — were contacted by phone or e-mail seeking input on the format of the state tournament. Their response was as follows:

                                                                                                              Boys   Girls

Switch to an NCAA 64-team bracket (seeding all teams)                     46        51

Remain status quo (section champions reach state tournament)        11         8
