It’s playoff time! The Colorado Class 5A state tournament is set to kick off with the first round on Wednesday. A total of 16 games will be played, and they will determine who will face each of the four teams that received first-round byes in each of the four regions.

Let's take a look at each first-round matchup in the Chuck Williams Region: 


First-round byes: No.2 Mountain Vista, No. 7 Smoky Hill, No. 10 Regis Jesuit, No. 15 Fruita Monument.

No. 31 Liberty (13-10) vs. No. 34 Rocky Mountain (13-10), Wednesday, 7 p.m.

On paper, this game looks to be about as even as a game can look. Two teams with matching records and separated by two seeding spots, Liberty and Rocky Mountain played during the regular season and Liberty left with a 57-55 win. These teams’ regular-season meeting was close the whole way and it’s reasonable to expect this game will be too. Rocky Mountain’s Joseph Urynowicz (18.2 ppg) has been shooting the ball well down the stretch and Liberty’s Sean Bohuslavsky (17.6) scored 28 points in the Lancers’ season finale, so the back-and-forth between those two will be worth the price of admission.
