The 2021 Boys State Tournament will be played in St. John Arena.
I have not been to the tournament for a few years (used to go every year). It just was not the same in the Schott. I may have to go back in 2021. That place was a great venue for high school basketball.

It’s not a better venue. It’s nostalgic for us old guys. There are seats up top with columns that partially block your view of the court. Having said that, I like the move because it’s smaller. Attendance has been so low the Schott seems empty.
Better venue? I might disagree for HS state. The Schott is a great venue for sure but for HS state I like St Johns. I watched a many of HS games there and as best I can remember the only time I sat behind the columns was Clark Kellogg's SR year when he dominated the game but ended up losing in the finals....I think it was the finals.
