In Ohio among other states all basketball teams make tournament. Takes 8 games to win state in their respective class. 2 sectional, 2 district 2 regional and 2 for state final four. If odd number of schools there are play in games for sectional for the lowest seeded teams. So the better teams max is eight games. Also all games are at a nuetral location. So for example Iredell area sectional would all be at same location and so forth. I love their system and ALL the high schools look forward to this even if they are having a down year.
