Ball State University Libraries' Indiana High School Basketball Tournament Map

March Map-ness: Indiana High School Boys Basketball Champions Map at Ball State Univeristy Libraries

The Ball State University Libraries' GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) created this map (click to enlarge) of Indiana High School Boys Basketball Champions for a March 2012 exhibit to coincide with the beginning of the high school state basketball tournament.  The map shows the locations of the state champions in boys basketball from 1911 with Crawfordsville High School to 1997 with Bloomington North, just before class basketball was introduced in the tournament in 1998.  The hometown team, Muncie Central, leads the state with eight championships during that time.

The map is also available for printing or use in the classroom from the University Libraries' Cardinal Scholar:

For more information about this map, please contact the GRMC from 8:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday at 765-285-1097.
