After an eventful "Selection Sunday" the field for the 2020 FHSAA State Championship is now set. The bubble wasn't kind to Palm Beach County teams as only one of the five teams with a chance at the #8 seed in their respective regions was selected, Palm Beach Lakes in Region 3-7A. To say there was frustration and confusion about the FHSAA selection process is an understatement. MaxPreps rankings are used by the FHSAA in the formula for rankings but do not use margin of victory.
District championships are wrapping up all over South Florida tonight, Palm Beach County teams finished yesterday, now what? In the past the process was very simple, district winner and runner up automatically advance to the regional round. This year however only the 4 district winners in a region are guaranteed a spot in regional round, the others are picked based on an FHSAA ranking formula based heavily on each teams MaxPreps rankings but no one knows for sure.

SourceHoops has put together an excellent event to wind down the high school fall ball in South Florida, getting together 20 quality high school programs to compete before going live in November. The showcase is stacked with talented teams and players that hold offers or interest from High Major D1 schools all the way to NAIA. #PBCHOOPS will be in the gym along with other scouts, media and college coaches allowed to be out during this time frame.
Here is a look of players and teams to watch in what should be an action packed day at the DS SPortsplex in Deerfield Beach:
Unfortunately this year we haven't been able to provide as much coverage to the GIRLS side of #PBCHOOPS this season due to staff restrictions, but that all changes next year when we'll have a dedicated staff member to keep up on the action all year long. However, just because you haven't seen much online in recent weeks doesn't mean there hasn't been a close eye on what's been happening thus far. Teams have reached the regional Semifinals, in some cases Finals and lay it all on the line tonight for one more chance next time around.
