IHSA Basketball Championship TicketsIllinois high school basketball comes to a close every spring, and the grand finale happens at the Peoria Civic Center. The IHSA basketball season concludes with the top four teams from each class (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A) making their way down to Central Illinois. While 4A features the largest and most well-known schools, exciting games are expected in all classes. The schedule is split up into two weekends: classes 1A and 2A share a weekend, followed next by classes 3A and 4A a week later. With some of the nation’s most sought-after basketball talent coming from Illinois, seeing future NCAA and NBA players on the court is a real possibility. Simeon, Whitney Young and Stevenson High School are a few schools that recently won the 4A championship and have previously sent players to the NBA.
