The Minnesota State High School League approved a maximized winter season with a 30% reduction in contests, according to the MSHSL's John Millea.

The MSHSL voted on a season of 18 games for boys and girls basketball, instead of the normal 26-game schedule.

While the MSHSL didn't discuss the Winter postseason, they did make the decision to not have anything played after section championships this fall.

The COIVD-19 pandemic has changed how high school sports have been and will be played for the 2020 -2021 school year.
