WIAA Boys' basketball kicks off today in Madison
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

The state boys' high school basketball tournament begins this (Thursday) morning in Madison.

Normally, the girls' tournament is first, but a scheduling conflict at the Kohl Center has the boys playing two weeks earlier.


First up today are the Division 3 semi-finals.

Eau Claire Regis will play Iola-Scandinavia at 9:05 a.m. and then La Crosse Aquinas will take on Whitefish Bay Dominican.

No team has more than three losses and Dominican has the best mark at 24-1. Dominican won back-to-back titles in 2004-05 and is the Associated Press' top-ranked team this year.

They beat defending champion Racine St. Catherine's in last weekend's sectionals. Aquinas was the runner-up at state a year ago.

The Division 1 quarter-finals will be played this afternoon and evening.

Madison Memorial plays Lake Geneva Badger and then two-time defending champion Oshkosh West plays a Germantown team that's making its first appearance at state.

Tonight, Bay Port faces Brookfield Central and Eau Claire North goes against Wauwatosa East.

Semi-finals are Friday in Divisions 1, 2, and 4. All four championship contests will be played on Saturday.
