After a seven-year hiatus, the PIAA Basketball Championships are returning to Hershey.
The PIAA voted 29-2 on Thursday to move the annual championships to Hershey’s Giant Center for the next four years, beginning with the 2012-13 season. Hershey had been the longtime host of the basketball finals until 2006, when the event was moved to Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center.
The Giant Center figures to be a busy place next Feburary and March. The facility also plays host to the District 3 basketball championships and the PIAA team and individual wrestling championships.
What are your thoughts on the switch? Do you prefer one location to the other?
