LATHAM — The schedule for the New York State Federation Basketball Tournament of Champions has been announced.

The tournament, which has not been contested since 2019, will be held Saturday and Sunday at Guilderland, Shaker and Shenendehowa high schools.

The boys’ tournament was held in Glens Falls from 1981-2010, while the girls’ tournament was held in the same location from 1995-2010. Albany’s MVP Arena hosted both tournaments from 2012-16, with the event returning to Glens Falls from 2017-19.

The tournament was then scheduled to move to Fordham University in New York City, but has not been held the last three seasons.

“We are grateful New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) and its member schools stepped up to host this event when Fordham University informed us late in the fall they could not host,” said Jim Foster, the Federation’s executive secretary, said in a release. “Three very good local high schools in Section 2 will play host to our event. There are some outstanding teams that have qualified for the event, and it will make for a great weekend of basketball.”

All three venues will be using all-digital tickets for the tournament. General admission tickets are $11.50 (including fees) and are available now at Games will be streamed online on the NFHS Network.
