It can be a huge advantage to be able to host a tournament in the postseason.
The Starkville Yellowjackets have the opportunity to do that at the end of February.
In an announcement by the Mississippi High School Activities Association on Thursday, SHS was awarded a host site for the Class 6A North State Tournament.
The Jackets, who take a 16-2 overall record into tonight's Class 6A, Region 3 matchup with Madison Central, were listed ahead of Southaven, Horn Lake, Tupelo, Clinton, Grenada and Madison Central.
"It's such an honor for our boys basketball program for an outstanding season to be selected as the North State 6A host," SHS athletic director Stan Miller said. "It's truly an advantage that we know to be able to host that in our high school gymnasium. To be in the Beehive for the 6A State North is tremendous. It's a credit to Greg Carter and the players for their accomplishments."
