At its board of directors meeting Feb. 18, the OHSAA finalized where regional boys and girls basketball tournament games will be held, as well as many of its spring sports state tournament venues.
The Division I regional basketball tournaments involving the Central District will be held at Ohio Dominican. The dates of the girls regional have not been announced, but the boys regional will be held March 11 and 13.
The venues have not been announced for the state boys and girls basketball tournaments, which in past years had been held at Ohio State. Those events were canceled last season because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
