Minnesota AAU Girls Basketball is proud to offer a state championship tournament format that protects teams from unbalanced competition and determines which teams will play in the Division I or Division II Championship brackets.  Our two weekend event provides Super Pool play competition May 8-9-10 that will place teams in Div I or II brackets for championship play, May 15-16-17.  Our Prelim Tournament places the top 6 seeded teams into 2 Super Pools, A & B.  Pools C through G are seeded traditionally beginning with the 7th seed being the top team in Pool C. The top 2 teams in Pools C through G earn spots in the Division I Championship bracket.  The remaining teams are placed in the Division II Championship bracket according to their finish in Prelim pool play.  This format protects weaker teams from the powerhouse teams while still providing all teams an opportunity to make it into the Div I Championship bracket. However, if you do not finish in the top 2 in Pools C through G, you still are provided an opportunity to be an AAU Champion, playing in the Div II championship bracket. Come out to the AAU State Tournament and see the best girls basketball players/teams Minnesota has to offer. See you in the gym.  Dave Preller, Director, MN AAU GBB
