INDIANAPOLIS — Just 24 hours after stating the boys' basketball state tournament will go on as scheduled but only with a limited number of fans allowed to attend, the Indiana High School Athletic Association has made another change.

Friday morning, the IHSAA announced the remainder of the state basketball tournament will be postponed for the time being. Earlier in the day, two regional sites had been changed.

"Due to the number of schools closing after today for an extended period of time, it has become apparent the IHSAA boys' basketball state tournament series cannot be completed as scheduled. Subsequently, the boys basketball tournament is postponed immediately," the statement read.

IHSAA commissioner Bobby Cox, who held a press conference on Thursday to announce the games would remain played but with fan restrictions, issued the following comment on Twitter:

"Despite our best efforts to continue our beloved tournament, it is simply not feasible at this time. We will continue to evaluate in the days and weeks to come and perhaps start the tournament at a later date."
