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! During the 2021-22 year, the IBCA will organize three events. 

  1. We will print an historical document that will include IBCA history, Illinois basketball history, memorable photos, and great basketball stories. 
  2. The IBCA will exhibit our histories along with some great memorabilia during both of the high school state tournaments. It should be a great exhibit! 
  3. We will host a 50th Anniversary Reunion for all 50 classes of Hall of Fame members on Saturday, July 9 at the McLean County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Bloomington. 

If you have any ideas or suggestions including some memorabilia from your school or conference, please contact IBCA 50th Anniversary Chairman Steve Allen:
