The Class A & B teams played their championship games in the state basketball tournament on Saturday at the Big House. Now it is time for the longest week of the year as we prepare to cover the 2A through 6A championships along with the men’s and women’s Big 12 basketball tournaments. It’s going to be all basketball all the time for much of staff. I’ll try to keep this updated throughout the week with photos and some behind the scenes looks at all the tournaments.

Here’s some photos from the A & B finals by Sarah Phipps and Brenda O’Brian. For gallery of even more photos from the games, click here.
