2023 39th District Tournament Draw

The district draw for the 2023 39th District boys and girls basketball tournament took place today at 11:00 a.m. at the Mason County STEAM Academy. Admission to the tournament will be $7 and streamed on PrepSpin.

The results:

Mason County vs. Bracken County
Augusta vs. St. Patrick

The bracket:

The 39th District remains as only two of the 64 basketball districts that blind draw for their district tournament over seeding.  It takes a majority vote (3-1) by the member schools to change tournament seeding plans. 

On the boys side, Mason County is the clear #1 seed and Bracken County the #2. Both teams beat Augusta by 25 points. However, Mason County and Bracken County will meet in the first round for the third time in 10 years.

Augusta defeated St. Patrick by a running clock twice this season.

The girls side is a toss up between the four schools. Bracken County has split games with Mason County and St. Patrick.

Bracken County will host the tournament in 2024, with Mason County hosting in 2025 and 2026.

No motion was made to seed the tournament. It appears Bracken County has given up on their effort to seed the district.
