On Wednesday, the NSAA made the decision to continue with the Boys State Basketball Tournament but limit attendance to immediate family as a coronavirus precaution. They made that decision based on a recommendation from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department. Since that announcement, there have been several organizations and leagues that have cancelled games and seasons.
As of Thursday at noon, Boys State Basketball games will still be played.
"At this point and time we're going to continue to play the (Boys) Basketball State Tournament," NSAA Executive Director Jay Bellar said. "We're always concerned about the virus and what they're doing will probably be updated hourly but at this time the tournament is still going on."
All games on Thursday and Friday will be available, free of charge, on the NFHS Network. The championship round on Saturday will still air on NET.
