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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
