IHSAA Basketball State Championship TicketsThe IHSAA final is the official championship game of Indiana high school basketball. Featuring the best teams from across the state, the championship is the culmination of the season-long quest for basketball greatness. Indiana has a rich, illustrious history with the sport of basketball. The championship game dates back to 1911, making it one of the oldest high school basketball tournaments in the country. Some of the top players and coaches to come from the state include Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, John Wooden and Glenn Robinson. The 1954 Milan High School basketball team, whose victory over the much larger Muncie Central High School, with 10 times the enrollment, was then dubbed the "Milan Miracle," served as the inspiration for the hit movie "Hoosiers." The championship game has been held in Indianapolis for most of its history though the campuses of Indiana and Purdue University, located in Bloomington and West Lafayette, respectively, have also served as host sites. If you enjoy high school basketball, then you should purchase IHSAA basketball state championship tickets at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
How are teams classified in IHSAA basketball?Teams are divided into four different classifications, A, 2A, 3A and 4A, based on their enrollment size. Each class has its own championship game. To make the competition fairer, the various classes do not cross over in the playoffs. The current classification system was instituted for the 1997 to 1998 season.
What is the format of the IHSAA Basketball State Championship tournament?Teams must progress through each stage of the tournament to reach the championship game.

The teams that win the sectionals will then advance to one of four regionals per class. The four regional winners advance to the semi-states.
