The MPSSAA congratulates all of the schools and their communities that participated in this year's tournament. We appreciate the cooperation and support received throughout. Our sincerest gratitude to our State Basketball Committee and Region Tournament Directors for all of their hard work throughout the season and leading up to the States. A special thanks to Tournament Director Greg LeGrand for another outstanding job of planning this big event and to the "team" of workers at the tournament site that helped to execute that plan. Once again, we cannot thank the University of Maryland College Park enough for their hospitality, cooperation, and support in working with us to provide first class facilities such as the Comcast Center for our championships. We can't wait to see what next year brings!
