2016 STATE B TOURNAMENT PAIRINGS
The head coaches of the eight qualifying teams will use an electronic process to seed the top four teams for the state tournament.  An NDHSAA-approved designee will randomly draw the opponents for the top four seeded teams.

The quarterfinal pairings are:
    #2 seed vs. Second Random Draw
    #3 seed vs. Third Random Draw
    #1 seed vs. First Random Draw
    #4 seed vs. Fourth Random Draw
A consolation series will be played in each state final tournament and any team refusing to play in this series forfeits its rights to team payments from that tournament.
