On March 24-26, 1916, the first High School State Basketball Tournament (a precursor to the current MHSAA Basketball Tournament) was held at Eastern Michigan University (originally known as The Michigan State Normal School) in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The tournament was organized by Michigan State Normal School Coaches and Staff W.T. Samson, Elmer Mitchell and Wilbur Bowen (credited by many with inventing the striped referee jersey still in use today).
Although the tournament was not the first high school tournament in the country, it was the first in the State of Michigan. Three hundred invitations were sent out to "Class B" schools with twelve teams responding and eventually participating in the tournament.
The original 12 schools that played in this first tournament were:
Marine City Dundee
Farmington Elkton Royal
Lansing Mt. Clemens
Marine City and Dundee each finished the tournament with a record of 5-1. A one-game playoff saw Marine City defeat Dundee, 23-22.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary, Saturday, February 20, the MCHS Boys Basketball Team, their coach, DJ Decker and AP/AD Chris Ming attended the EMU-Toledo basketball game where at halftime, representatives from the original twelve schools were recognized.
