March Madness

Posted on March 11, 2014 at 11:08 AM by Autumn Shoemaker

It's 2A time! 
We are home to the KSHSAA Class 2A State Basketball Championship every year in March. Each year, the event attracts the top 2A high school basketball teams from across the state to the unique chance to play in Kansas State University's Bramlage Coliseum. Thousands of visitors take over The Little Apple® during this four-day tournament.  

If you are a local business owner- we invite you to help us welcome these visitors by including a greeting on your marquee, helping with food donations, and collaborating with us on Facebook to make sure visitors know where to shop, stay and eat while in Manhattan! 
For 2014 brackets, check the boys' bracket and the the girls' bracket pages, which are available for download for the tournament. 

The 2013 tournament ended with Belleville/Republic County winning the title of boy's champions, while Smith Center took home the girls' number one spot. 

The Manhattan Convention & Visitors Bureau is proud to help host the tournament in partnership with the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department and the K-State athletic department.

For more information, visit the Kansas State High School Activities Association Web page.

If interested in volunteering with the CVB for this and/or other tournaments, please email for more information.
