WIAA board considers moving basketball tournaments


The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association board votes Tuesday on whether to move the state boys and girls basketball tournaments from Madison to the Green Bay area beginning in 2013.

The WIAA has been considering the move because the Kohl Center in Madison may have scheduling conflicts with Big Ten hockey. In February the organization said it would enter into a 5-year agreement with the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon if the University of Wisconsin couldn't accommodate the tournaments.

The boys tournament has been held in Madison for 92 years. The girls tournament has been in Madison since it began in 1976.

The WIAA Board of Control is meeting in Stevens Point Tuesday afternoon.
