The Kansas State High School Activities Association Class 1A Division II boys and girls basketball championships are held annually the second weekend of March. The 1A Division II classification includes the smallest high schools in Kansas, but these towns typically seem to bring their entire community to the state championships to cheer on their teams. It is not unusual to see several hundred fans all dressed in red come from a small town whose population may only be 400 people. The games begin on Wednesday and Thursday. The championship games for the girls and boys are held on Saturday afternoon.
