After the conclusion of the quarterfinal round, the 2020 KSHSAA State Basketball Tournament will be canceled.  Given the escalating concerns regarding COVID-19, the best decision for the safety of the student-athletes and spectators was to cancel the remainder of this championship tournament.  The KSHSAA regrets the lost opportunity for teams and players that have worked to achieve their goals. 

The state tournaments were being held in Wichita, Emporia, Salina, Hutchinson, Manhattan and Dodge City. The tournaments were to conclude on Saturday with the Third Place and Championship Games, with semifinal games on Friday, but all of those games have now been canceled.
