Many say the switch to class basketball was the end of Hoosier Hysteria. Now it may come to an end.
Senate Bill No. 84, authored by Senator Jean Leising, would allow school corporations to “participate in an interscholastic athletics association only if the association does not conduct boys’ or girls’ interscholastic basketball games in which the teams are divided into classes.” The Indiana High School Athletic Association operates the state’s four-class basketball tournaments. The change would take effect July 1, 2012. Indiana has had class basketball since the 1997-98 season.
