NSAA State Basketball To Play Boys & Girls Same Week In 2022


The Nebraska School Activities Association announced on Wednesday that the 2022 boys and girls state basketball tournaments will be held over the course of the same week, running from Monday, March 7th through Saturday, March 12th.

The University of Nebraska will be hosting the 2022 Big Ten Conference Wrestling Championships March 5th and March 6th at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, causing a conflict with what would have normally been the week of girls state basketball.

The NSAA, Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau, University of Nebraska, Pinnacle Bank Arena and Lincoln Public Schools are committed to providing a championship experience for Nebraska’s best in girls and boys basketball, according to a statement from the NSAA.

All of the 2022 NSAA Girls and Boys Basketball Championship Finals will be televised live on NET on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12. A full schedule for the 2022 girls and boys basketball postseason and state championship events will be released at a later date.
