Basketball fans wanting to stream the upcoming Arkansas state tournaments will now be able to do so.

The Arkansas Activities Association, in conjunction with Mascot Media, will broadcast live games from every 2021 state basketball tournament game up to the finals for all classifications.

One reason for the AAA's decision was the reduction in capacity for each host venue and travel restrictions related to COVID-19.

The AAA app can be found on both the Apple AppStore or GooglePlay by searching for "Arkansas Activities Association." The AAA website will be located on www.AAAScoreboard.com.
