- Playoff system at a glance
The top three teams from each of the Sac-Joaquin Section’s 25 leagues are guaranteed playoff spots. The top nine leagues over the last three years in the playoffs get a fourth berth. The playoff teams are divid- ed into Divisions I-VI accord- ing to school enrollment and seeded into six brackets.

Had the current playoff system been in place last year, the Tokay Tigers varsity boys basketball season would not have finished the way it did.
The 45-44 loss to the Edison Vikings that ended the regular season last February would have meant little to either team. They tied for second in the Tri-City Athletic League, which would have been enough for playoff berths.
