NCHSAA East Regional basketball is coming back to Greenville.

The decision was made during the state’s Board of Directors meeting Thursday. The East Regionals, scheduled for March 3, will be split between East Carolina’s Minges Coliseum and Fayetteville State University. No indication was given as to which games would be played at either venue.

Greenville last hosted an East Regional in 2010, the final year of a long-running arrangement that saw the boys play at Minges Coliseum and the girls at J.H. Rose. Fayetteville has hosted since 2011, a span that saw games played at the Crown Complex from 2011-16, then split between Fayetteville State and Methodist College last season.

The other major news out of the board meeting was amendments to the state’s rules on football offseason skill development and playoff seeding procedures. Beginning Friday, football coaches are allowed to work with an unlimited number of players in the offseason, though body-to-body contact is still not allowed.

There were also alterations made to the role MaxPreps rankings play in determining playoff fields. MaxPreps will no longer use point differential or margin of victory in its rankings for North Carolina, and will issue “adjusted rankings” on a weekly basis for review.

Starting next season, the top team from each half of split conference must finish in the top three overall in the league, or have a .500 or better record, to earn a No. 1 seed. That rule was in response to a scenario that played out in the 4-A West bracket this year, when South Caldwell was the No. 2 seed with a 1-10 record because it got the top 4-A seed out of a split league.
