JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Arkansas Activities Association is allowing high school basketball teams to finish their regular season.

They announced Friday that they’re moving the dates of the Regional & State Basketball Tournaments back a week. Here‘s the statement they released:

”The Arkansas Activities Association will be moving the Regional Basketball Tournaments, the State Basketball Tournaments, and the State Basketball Finals back one week to allow conferences to finish their regular seasons and tournaments. Due to the amount of COVID-19 cancellations during the regular season, a conference tournament may be needed for correct seeding into the regional and state tournaments. Schools and conferences will need to check the updated deadlines for submitting their final seeds to the AAA. The AAA is committed to finding the most equitable solution when dealing with COVID-19 related no-contest and with unprecedented weather conditions that prevent the timely completion of the season”.

Regional Tournaments will now be held March 3rd-6th. The State Tournament will be held March 8th-15th for 1A, 2A, 3A, & 5A. The State Tournament will be held March 9th-13th for 4A & 6A.

The State Basketball Finals are now set for March 18th-20th at Bank OZK Arena.
