The NWBA Junior Division Executive Committee has announced the 2016-17 NWBA March Rankings for Varsity and Prep. The Junior Division Executive Committee used the rankings from March to distribute invitations and establish seeds for the 2017 National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament presented by ABC Medical, set for Louisville, Kentucky, March 30-April 2.

The top 16 ranked teams from Varsity received an invite to play for a Varsity National Championship in the Junior Division at the 2017 National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament presented by ABC Medical. There are 16 teams from Prep that will play for a Prep National Championship at the 2017 NWBT. Varsity teams ranked 17-32 received an invite to participate in the National Junior Invitational Tournament (NIT) at the 2017 NWBT.  If a team does not accept their bid for post season play, invitations will be sent to the next team, in order of ranking, until both tournaments are filled (Section 5.02 of NWBA Junior Division Guidelines). 

The brackets for Prep, Varsity and NIT tournaments will be posted to the NWBA website at 5 PM MST on Monday, March 13.

The 2017 NWBT presented by ABC Medical will feature a total of 48 teams from the NWBA Adult Division and 48 teams from the NWBA Junior Division. For more information on the 2017 NWBT visit
