Numbers Never Lie: SoHi Girls Lose State Basketball Berth On Revised WPI

The Soldotna Lady Stars basketball team will not compete at the 2013 ASAA 4A State Basketball Championships scheduled for the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage on March 21-23; this announced by the Alaska School Activities Association on Monday morning after the WPI was revised.

The Winning Percentage Index, used to determine two at-large berths and seeding for the state basketball tournament, was revised after discrepancies in teams overall records were brought to ASAA’s attention. 


The Stars and Lathrop Malemutes were separated by .0005 of percentage point. 

Lathrop’s adjusted WPI: .5649

SoHi’s adjusted WPI: .5644


The Lathrop Malemutes are now in!   

The Malemutes are the #6 seed and will face #3 seed Kodiak in the first round on Thursday, March 21.  Game time is scheduled for 8:00 a.m.


The Wasilla girls, #1 seed, the Kodiak Bears and Colony Knights all qualify to the state basketball championships.
