What if the 17u world of basketball had a 64 team tournament to end the season? What would be the rules of qualifying and what would it look like? Prep Hoops gives you an idea today.

Rule 1: We want one team from every state to get everybody involved around the country.

Rule 2: We are adding Washington DC and Canada but combining Idaho and Montana since the best players from each of their states converge into one. That means 51 automatic bids for being the best in the state, plus 13 at-large teams. From there we seed them. These are our 64 selections.
