The first WIAA State Boys Basketball Tournament was held in 1916. This will be the 22nd year the Kohl Center has hosted the championships since moving from the UW Field House in 1998. The tournament featured a one-class format until 1934 when, for two years (1934-35), there were two classes. From 1936 until 1939, the  tournament increased to three classes, and then returned to the one class format in 1940. A one-class tourney prevailed until 1972 when it again became a two-class event. The tourney went to three classes again in 1974 and remained that way until a four-division format was adopted in 1991. The 2011 State Tournament introduced the first five-division format and qualifying four teams from each division. Randolph has won 10 State championships, the most titles won by any member school. Beloit and Dominican have won seven championships. Stevens Point has won six titles, and Milwaukee King, Milwaukee Vincent, Milwaukee Lincoln and Racine St. Catherine's have each won five. There have been 122 different schools that have won championships. Neenah and Superior own the record for the most State Tournament appearances with 27, followed by Beloit with 26, and then Eau Claire with 25.

In Division One top-seeded Brookfield Central is making its 11th overall appearance and its second in the past three seasons. The Lancers' furthest advance in the tournament has been to the semifinals in 2000, 2002, 2008 when the tourney featured eight teams and again in 2017. They finished runner-up in the Greater Metro Conference standings behind Hamilton this season and are the champions of the Oconomowoc Sectional following a 69-62 overtime victory over Hamilton in the final. West Allis Central, the second seed, qualifies for the third time and for the first time since 2015. The Bulldogs only other appearance came in 1947. They have advanced to the State semifinals in each of those two previous seasons before being ousted from title contention. This year, the Bulldogs finished atop the standings in the West Division of the Woodland  Conference. Their tournament run to State came through the Waukesha South Sectional. They defeated Waukesha West 78-72 in double overtime in the final.  Third-seeded Sun Prairie advances to the State Tournament for the second straight season after making its first-ever appearance last season. They defeated Madison La Follette 66-53 in the sectional final played at Waunakee to advance to the State semifinals for the second year in a row. The Cardinals placed fourth in the Big Eight Conference this season. Fourth-seeded Neenah qualifies for the first time since 2014 and for the 27th time in the school's history, which ties for most appearances among all members. The Rockets have won three championships. Those came in 1930, 1975 and 1978. In addition, they have an abundance of runner-up results, including 1920, 1939, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1988 and 2014. They finished third in the Fox Valley Association this season, and they advanced from the Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln Sectional with a 68-66 victory over Hudson in the final.

The Knights lost in the semifinals that season and in the quarterfinals in 1993. They defeated last year's champion Kaukauna 57-44 in the  Watertown Sectional final to advance to the tourney field. The Knights are the champions in the North Shore Conference this season. Last year's runner-up and second-seeded Milwaukee Washington qualifies for the State Tournament for the third consecutive season and for the 14th time overall. The Purgolders have won four State championships, gaining possession of the gold ball in 1985, 1987, 1990 and 1993. They have also finished runner-up on three occasions, including 1997, 2000 and again last year. This season, they are the champions of the Milwaukee City Conference. The Purgolders have advanced out of the Milwaukee Lutheran Sectional following a 87-66 triumph over Milwaukee Bay View in the final. La Crosse Central, the third seed, returns to the field for the fourth straight season and for the 18th time overall. Their earliest experiences in the State Tournament date back to the 1920s. They made nine consecutive appearances from 1920-28. That string of experiences produced a State title in 1925. The Red Raiders added their second championship with a title in Division 2 in 2017. Another notable finish came in 1979 when the Red Raiders placed runner-up in Division 1. They are the champions of the Mississippi Valley Conference this season, and they continue their chance to win a second title in the past three seasons with a 81-55 win over Merrill in the Wausau East Sectional final. Elkhorn is the fourth seed. The Elks return to the tournament field for the first time since 1987 and for the fifth time overall.

The first two appearances were in 1938 and 1939. They qualify this season following their 46-41 victory over Freedom in the Appleton North Sectional final. The Viking shared the title in the North Eastern Conference this year with Freedom and Wrightstown. Fourth-seeded Northwestern is making its first State appearance since the second year of two straight tournament appearances in 2009 and 2010, which   resulted in a runner-up finish in Division 2.
