The girls’ and boys’ state basketball tournaments will start Feb. 21 and Feb. 22, respectively, the Georgia High School Association announced Friday.

Severe winter weather that brought ice and snow to parts of the state forced the GHSA to postpone the state tournament to allow teams to complete their region tournaments. The state tournament was scheduled to begin Feb. 19.

The Class A tournament will start Feb. 24-25, the same dates for the second round of the Class AA-AAAAAA tournament.

The quarterfinals for all classes are Feb. 26-27, followed by the Class AA-AAAAAA semifinals on March 1 and the Class A semifinals on March 3.

The state finals are March 6-8 at the Macon Coliseum.

The GHSA said it will announce the sites for the semifinals on Wednesday, Feb. 26.
