Boys basketball playoffs began Monday and of the top ten teams in class 4-A, only #5 Des Moines North didn’t get a first round bye.
Seeding is based on wins and losses of games five through 15. Points are awarded per win with four points received over a 4-A team, 3 points over a 3-A team and so forth.
Unfortunately for 20-2 North, both losses came during this period, and one of North’s wins was over class 3-A Carlisle.
They faced Lincoln in their first round tie. It was no bye, but North rolls 83-62.
North now plays Friday at Southeast Polk. The Rams are one of only two teams to beat North all season.
