The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association has once again revised the number of games for the state basketball tournament cutoff.
The NJSIAA will now figure a team’s power points based on that teams first 15 games played through Feb. 11.
At the start of the season, the NJSIAA planned to compute power points based on a team’s first 16 games played through Feb. 8. But the NJSIAA changed that number to 15 and then to 14 because of the number of storms that forced games to be canceled or postponed.
The NJSIAA shifted the number of games back to 15 and extended the cutoff date today because the organization received a number of complaints from schools that had already played 15 games.
Teams earn power points based on their wins and their opponents’ enrollment and wins. The top 16 teams in each enrollment group make the playoffs. The state tournament starts March 3.
