AHSAA Final 48 State Basketball Tournament

February 25, 2014 to March 01, 2014

The state of Alabama was the first and is one of very few states that annually host its girls and boys state basketball championships during the same week at the same venue. This format allows for a great spectator experience and lots of excitement around this state championship. Final 48 refers to the remaining 4 boys and 4 girls teams in each class (1A-6A) in the boys and girls state basketball tournaments. The tournament is hosted annually over 5 days in late February or early March and consists of 24 semi-final games and 12 state championship games. AHSAA recently renewed a contract to keep the FINAL 48 at the BJCC in Birmingham, AL through 2020.
