Crews prepare Resch Center for WIAA girls state basketball

Posted:

ASHWAUBENON (WKOW) — Work crews prepare the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon for its first girls state basketball tournament.

The WIAA girls tournament has been moved from the Kohl Center in Madison to the Resch Center where the games begin Thursday.

Workers are busy putting in the basketball court and preparing for a crowd. Earlier this week, the arena was still an ice rink. They'll move or cover some of the advertising in the arena due to WIAA rules -- no beer, liquor and gaming ads are allowed.

WLUK-TV reports about 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the tournament. Organizers say the crowd will likely eclipse last year's attendance at the Kohl Center of 31,000.

You can watch all of the WIAA games on WKOW starting Thursday at 1:35 p.m.
