The first WIAA State Boys Basketball Tournament was held in 1916. The Kohl Center has hosted the championships 22 years 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 126 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.
