The 39th annual WIAA girls basketball state championships will take place Thursday-Saturday, March 20-22, at the Resch Center in Green Bay. This is the second time the girls basketball State Tournament will be conducted in Green Bay. 

TOURNEY HISTORY:  The first WIAA State Girls Basketball Championship Tournament was held in 1976. The tournament was held at the UW Field House from 1976-97 and also in 1999, 2000 and 2002.

The current site of the tournament, the Resch Center in Green Bay, became the home of the tournament in 2013. The tournament featured a three-class format until 1991, when a four-division format was adopted. In 2011, a fifth division was added. Cuba City has won the most State titles over the years with nine. Milwaukee Washington has won five, and Barneveld, Fall Creek, Flambeau and Kimberly have won four.
