With just three days remaining in the season, almost nothing is known for sure in the District 2 playoff picture, short of the fact that it's an open tournament this season.

Here is what's at stake through the final two games of the season.

Class 4A: Wyoming Valley West needs one win to earn the No. 2 spot in the six-team group and a bye to the semifinals. If the Spartans win, Hazleton Area is relegated to the third seed and a likely quarterfinal.

Valley West has Division I leaders Pittston Area and Dallas left on the schedule.

Hazleton Area has Crestwood and Berwick remaining.

Class A: An easy one for the WVC, which has just one team.

MMI Prep sits fourth and is in line for a semifinal matchup with Old Forge.

Class 2A: With WVC Division III up for grabs, this is going to be fun to watch.

Hanover Area and GAR are tied for fourth in the class, but the division winner gets a bump up in the brackets.

Both teams have Northwest on their slates, with GAR hosting Meyers and Hanover Area hosting Lake-Lehman in the other remaining games.

Northwest and Wyoming Seminary complete the WVC entries.

Class 3A: Saved the best for last, and because it's virtually anything goes in this bracket.

Scranton Prep is in line for the No. 1 seed, but with division winners getting higher seeds, any of Holy Redeemer, Nanticoke, Dallas and Pittston Area could earn a No. 2 or No. 3 seed. Unless Crestwood is able to steal Division I, then the Comets would move up.

Add to that mix Lake-Lehman, which is in line for a first-round home game, and the WVC currently has six of the top seven teams in the class.
