1. The Board discussed the IHSA Girls and Boys Basketball State Final hosting contracts, which are set to expire after the 2020 state tournaments. The Board intends to seek feedback in the coming months on a potential schedule change beginning in 2021 that would shift the IHSA Girls Basketball State Final Tournament to playing all four classes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of IHSA Week 34 (March 4-6, 2021). The IHSA Boys Basketball State Final Tournament would play all four classes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of IHSA Week 35 (March 11-13, 2021).
I'm no President Trump fan but thank you sir for your comments in regard to the NFL and those protesting our nations anthem. You were spot on!!!

I really like the concept, if they make Saturday a championship Saturday. I have long been an advocate in playing all title games on Saturday night with the present format. Fans do not attend the 3rd place games, except for schools Involved.
go cubs go!

I have no idea what they're considering, but here's one option

Thursday: Afternoon . 1A semi-finals; evening 2A semi-finals
Friday: Afternoon 3a semi-finals; evening 4A semi-finals
Saturday: Afternoon 1A-2A championships; evening 3A-4A championships

(drop the 3rd place games, just give the two Thursday losers in each class a "Final Four" trophy)
Dropping the 3rd place game doesn't seem to have hurt the NCAA tournament any...
