As released by the KSHSAA earlier today – “As postseason basketball approaches, the KSHSAA and Fort Hays State University have mutually agreed to relocate this year’s Class 1A Division I state basketball tournament from FHSU to the Civic Center in Dodge City. The state tournament dates remain as scheduled March 9 – 12, 2016. The Dodge City Sports Commission will be working to provide a positive experience for all participants. The 2,500 seat capacity Civic Center is home to Dodge City Community College basketball and in past decades hosted the Class BB state high school tournaments and the annual Dodge City Tournament of Champions, featuring high school basketball teams from across the state.”
