When Indiana went to class basketball, the sectionals (equivalent to districts) lost all their luster. Rivalry match-ups in your sectional went away and teams sometimes had to travel over an hour to play in their sectional. Fan attendance at the sectional level was terrible. Not sure if this is still the case, but I'd assume to ensure teams are playing within their class, the travel necessary would be the same or worse than it was in Indiana. Ask a majority of people in Indiana and they'll tell you class basketball killed the state tournament.
