The Maine Principals' Association has awarded MPBN the television broadcast and streaming rights to the boys' and girls' state finals basketball games in February of 2016.

MPBN will broadcast coverage of the ten final games which include AA, A, B, C and D class schools. State cheerleading finals will also be broadcast statewide.

Dick Durost of the Maine Principals' Association says he's pleased to continue the tradition and partnership first established between the MPA and MPBN in 1979.

To celebrate the 38th anniversary, MPBN will rebroadcast the Friday and Saturday championship games in their entirety on Sunday.

The playoffs will include games in Portland, Augusta, and Bangor. MPBN will announce its coverage schedule in early February.
