UIL Boys Basketball State Tournament TicketsThe University Interscholastic League is a state-wide inter-school organization that provides Texas public high school students with educational experiences in a variety of different extracurricular academic and athletic fields. In basketball, the UIL helps to organize the state-wide high school regular season and postseason tournament in Texas. The aim of the organization is not only to instill skills, but also the ideas of teamwork, self-motivation and intellectual curiosity. Founded in 1910, the UIL is administered by the University of Texas at Austin. It is the largest organization of its kind in the entire world. The basketball season begins in the late fall and concludes in the spring with the annual champion crowned at the state tournament. Teams are organized into six conferences (known as 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A) based on enrollment sizes. To keep the competition fair, only teams from the same conference will play against each other. If you want to experience the culmination of an exciting season, then you should purchase UIL boys basketball state tournament tickets at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
What is the format of the tournament?The state tournament represents the final stage of the UIL playoffs. At the end of the regular season, each team is placed in one of four regions. In order to compete for the championship, teams must advance through every round of the region. The first round of the tournament is the bi-district stage. This takes place over 32 separate districts. The teams that win in the initial round then advance to the area stage. This is followed by regional quarterfinals, regional semifinals and a regional final. These rounds take place at various locations around the state. The four regional winners are then matched up in the state tournament, which includes both the overall UIL semifinals and finals at a neutral site venue. The winner of the final is declared the annual champion at that particular conference.
