The Missouri State High School Activities Association is calling off the remaining Class 4 and 5 state high school championship basketball games.

The organization called the decision "difficult" but stated in a news release Monday that the cancellations were made in consultation with local and state officials, as well as schools.

"We understand the unexpected hurdles this creates for our schools and fans, and apologize for the inconveniences it has caused,"  said Dr. Kerwin Urhahn, MSHSAA executive director. "Our thoughts are with our schools as they navigate the uncertainty of these times."

Information concerning the activities of music, speech, debate and theatre, Scholar Bowl and spring sports will be available later today, MSHSAA reported.
