Boys' State Tourney Brackets Set
The girls’ basketball teams competed for the state title this past week, and now the boys will take the floor at the Charleston Civic Center this coming week, battling for the state crown in each of the three classes.
The boys’ state tournament starts at the Civic Center on Wednesday, as quarterfinal action will take place in Class AAA, AA and A the first two days. The winners will advance to semifinals on Friday, and then the championship games will be played on Saturday.
MetroNews has broadcast every game of the state tournament for 20 years. Over 30 MetroNews radio affiliates will carry all or part of the action from this year’s boys’ state tournament. In addition, the broadcast can also be heard live over the Internet at www.WVStateTournament.com.. That site will provide real time scoring, game recaps and much, much more.
