2021 Indiana High School Basketball State Tournament: Sectional Championship Scores

New, 6 comments

The first round is complete as Regional Saturday is set for next week.

Last year we lost the best day of the year in Indiana: Regional Saturday. It is the grueling test, where the best have to win twice in one day if they want to win a state championship. COVID-19 robbed us of last year and this year crowds will be limited, but they will be back.

Here is who will be there, including all three in-state Purdue commits:

CLASS 4A

Valparaiso 59, Portage 53

Robbie Hummel and Albert Evans had a fun exchange over this one:
