Memories from 100 years of state tournament basketball

The Kansas State High School Activities Association is celebrating 100 years of state basketball tournaments.

There’s an excellent book that you can buy for $10 that lists all the champs, the record holders, the coaches, the top players. It’s amazing. McPherson’s own Carol Swenson is the man behind the book.

What I would love to hear from you is your memories from the state basketball tournaments.

No matter the class, what do you remember? Did you play in the state tournament? Are you a fan of state tourneys? Have you been to more than one class? Which is your favorite?
