The state’s longest-running high school basketball tournament kicks off Monday at Gainesville High with a major twist in 2020. Due to the lingering coronavirus pandemic, no fans will be allowed for the three-day event. First round games will be Monday. On Tuesday, the four semifinal games will take place and finals will be on Wednesday night.
