Fans of High School Basketball will have to pay a little attention to the schedule for the February 2023, as the Maine Principal's Association has made major changes to the popular event!

Friday, is now a 4 game session. Saturday and Monday will be 2 4-game sessions, with  8 games played each day. Tuesday, is a 4-game schedule with games in the afternoon/evening. Wednesday is now a day full of semifinals with 6 games and 3 sessions. Thursday is devoted to semifinals with 6 games and 3 sessions. Friday will just have 2 games at night, with the Class B Regional Finals and Saturday will be 2 sessions with Class D playing their Regional Finals in the Afternoon and Class C playing their Regional Finals at Night

This now avoids Class C playing back-to-back Friday in the semifinals and finals on Saturday, and allows for postponements in the event of snow.
