Following Gov. Eric Holcomb's March 19 directive that all Indiana schools will be closed until May 1, the Indiana High School Athletic Association has announced that this year’s boys basketball state tournament is officially cancelled.
“It is with great sadness and disappointment that we inform Hoosiers of the cancellation of the remaining games of the 2020 IHSAA boys basketball tournament series,” said IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox. “While the association maintained every hope of continuance, it is now evident those hopes are now unreachable. Albeit there will not be regional, semistate and state champions crowned across our four classifications, the heath and safety of our public remains paramount and our primary focus.”
On March 13, IHSAA announced the state tournament's remaining games would be postponed beginning with the regional games due to the growing number of school closures.
Any updates on the status of IHSAA-sponsored spring sports will be announced later.
