On August 8, the Iowa High School Athletic Association released a statement with changes to the Boys State Basketball Tournament.

"A five-day State Basketball Tournament is the first major move in the tournament since moving from three to four classes in 1985 and marks the first time the final day of the tournament is not scheduled on a Saturday.

There will be seven games on Monday and Tuesday of Tournament Week at 9:30 a.m. and six on the remaining three days, starting at 10:30 a.m.

Consolation games, which have been played since 1929, will continue to be played under the new format, with the four championship games being played Friday afternoon and evening. The order of the games will continue to be class 1A-4A. All days will be one session ticket.

Des Moines has hosted the State Basketball Tournament for the past 55 years and 61 of the last 63 years. 2018 marks the 107th year of a Boys State Basketball Tournament and the 96th year under the administrative auspices of the IHSAA."

Some good news for fans attending the tourney, ticket prices will remain the same price as last year at $10 a day.
