The Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA)'s Boys Basketball State Finals will now be played on Saturday, April 3, IHSAA Commissioner Paul Neidig announced on Monday.

The IHSAA Boys Basketball State Finals, which had previously been planned for March 27, were pushed back to April 3 in order to provide flexibility for scheduling the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

“Our Executive Committee felt it was most important to preserve the experience for our young people of playing for a state championship in Bankers Life Fieldhouse,” Commissioner Paul Neidig said of the decision.

Neidig said that the committee felt the April 3 rescheduling of the Boys Basketball State Finals would cause the least amount of disruption and impact the fewest number of schools.

The dates and locations of the earlier rounds of the state tournament remain unchanged with sectionals scheduled for March 2-6; regionals on March 13, and semi-state games on March 20.

This will be just the second time ever and the first time since 1978 that the boys state finals will be held in the month of April.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
