Indiana’s Debate Over Single Class Basketball

The IHSAA is holding town hall meetings around the state on whether high school basketball should return to the pre-1997 single class system.

Many say a return to the old system would be difficult and would not reflect changes in the high school sport.

Should high school basketball teams play in the same division regardless of school size? That’s the question the Indiana High School Athletics Association has been asking coaches, athletic directors, and players at town hall meetings all around the state this spring.

The meetings are a response to legislation Senator Mike Delph proposed to bring back single class basketball, and while some say letting small and large schools play together adds excitement to the game, others say more teams are able to win state championships under the current system.
