Celebrating 100 Years of Basketball Tournaments
To mark the 100th boys’ basketball tournament next week, the milestone is being celebrated at both the girls’ and boys’ tournaments this year. In addition to special recognition of past achievements, a number of special on-court presentations are planned. The center-spreads of both tournament programs include timelines listing significant events, as well as listings of the top coaches, players and teams, plus the best shots, finishes and games.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the celebration is a collection of state tournament memorabilia that will be on display. Titled “A Century of Memories,” the display is sponsored by Wells Fargo, the League’s premier corporate partner. School personnel from around the state have lent trophies, uniforms, balls and the like that will be displayed at Target Center adjacent to the skyway entrance to the building. Among the items on display will be the very first trophy awarded to Fosston in 1913.
The display will be available for viewing throughout the boys’ tournament.”

Tickets will be available at Target Center and Williams Arena. Quarterfinal tickets cost $14.00 for adults and $9.00 for students.
