For 37+ years Maine Public Broadcasting has covered the Maine State High School Basketball Tournament. The tournament brings schools from across the state together late in the winter for two weeks. Some schools have hundreds of students and represent cities like Portland and Bangor, other schools struggle to find enough students to field a team and their games may be the biggest thing to happen in town on any given night. I have covered the games from the Civic Center in Portland for the last 6 years. The games are mostly from the larger schools in the state and largely from the Portland area.
