The Georgia High School Association basketball state tournament will begin Friday, Feb. 21 for girls and Saturday, Feb. 22 boys in Classes AA-AAAAAA, the GHSA announced Friday.
A winter storm that brought ice and snow to North Georgia this week forced the association to postpone the state tournament twice in order to allow teams to complete their region tournaments. The state tournament was originally scheduled to begin Feb. 18.
The Class A tournament will start Feb. 24-25, the same dates for the second round of the tournament in the higher classifications.
The quarterfinals for all classes are Feb. 26-27, followed by the Class AA-AAAAAA semifinals on March 1 and the Class A semifinals on March 3.
The state finals are March 6-8 at the Macon Coliseum.
The GHSA will announce sites for the state semifinals on Feb. 26.
