Seeds for the Section II Class A boys’ basketball postseason tournament were released Wednesday.

Here’s our breakdown of the classification’s postseason field.

Fast-paced, high-scoring Amsterdam earned the No. 1 seed. The Rams are seeking their first area crown since the 1990s.

Best of the rest

No. 2 Mohonasen proved itself in the Suburban Council this season, while No. 3 Lansingburgh is the defending champion.

Lansingburgh prevailed in a classic against Averill Park. In overtime, Lansingburgh won 64-62.

Don’t be surprised if ...

No. 5 Gloversville finds a way into the title game. The Dragons take — and make — a lot of 3-pointers and are capable of taking down any team in this classification on the right day.

Keep your eyes on ...

Mohonasen junior Duncan Tallman, who is leading the Mighty Warriors while playing with a shoulder injury.
