Since the fall of 1971, the IBCA has supported Illinois Basketball at three levels: Jr. High, High School, and College. We annually honor Coaches of the Year, select girls and boys All-State teams, choose All-Academic teams, host All-Star games, honor Organizations of the Year, and select Hall of Fame coaches, players, officials, media, friends, and championship teams.

After 50 years of serving our basketball community, we are ready to celebrate! The IBCA exhibited our histories along with some great memorabilia during both of the high school state tournaments. The Basketball Museum of Illinois sponsors weekly radio and Twitter spots highlighting 60 of our Most Influential People of the past 50 years.

Finally, the IBCA will host a 50th Anniversary Reunion for all 50 classes of Hall of Fame recipients on Saturday, July 9 at the McLean County Fairgrounds in Bloomington. For that event, IBCA will print an historical document that will include IBCA history, Illinois basketball history, memorable photos, and great basketball stories. We also will distribute a commemorative coin celebrating our great 50 year history.
