IHSAA Cancels 2020 Boys Basketball Tournament
Friday, March 20, 2020

In an announcement that everyone involved were fearing, but in some cases expected the Indiana High School Athletic Association has canceled the high school boys basketball ball tournament.

The announcement came after Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb said that schools would be out until at least May 1.

In a statement released by IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox, he cited that the action was taken following Thursday's directive by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb that all Indiana schools will be closed until May 1st, and the Indiana High School Athletic Association announced that this year’s IHSAA boys basketball state tournament is officially cancelled.

Commissioner Cox went on to say, “While the Association maintained every hope of continuance, it is now evident those hopes are now unreachable. Albeit there will not be regional, semi-state and state champions crowned across our four classifications, the health and safety of our public remains paramount and our primary focus.

Last Friday, the IHSAA announced the remaining games of the state tournament would be postponed beginning with the regional games due to the growing number of school closures.
