LINCOLN – Following the conclusion of Class A boys district finals on Wednesday night, the official boys state basketball bracket was announced.

Due to the Big 10 Wrestling Championships taking over the PBA this weekend in Lincoln, both the NSAA Girls and Boys State Basketball Championships will take place in one week from Monday, March 7 – Saturday, March 12.

During the weeklong state tournament, Classes B, C2 and D1 boys will play Monday, Wednesday and Friday with C2/D1 third place games scheduled for Thursday. Classes A, C1 and D2 boys will play Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with C1/D2 third place games scheduled for Friday.

Also, a reminder that these game times have flexibility to be adjusted by the NSAA if the same school qualifies for the state tournament in different classes and they play on the same day. Girls Class D1 games morning/afternoon sessions were flipped to accommodate the Shelton girls and boys while boys Class C2 games saw their afternoon/evening sessions flipped to allow Grand Island Central Catholic fans to attend both games.
