The City Alliance released the draw for the 80th Annual City Tournament for Boys Basketball. The bracket is a single-elimination format tournament, with all of the seeds 1-14, determined by using the Sagarin Ratings as of January 8.
Covenant (5-4) is the #8 seed and will host #9 seed Arsenal Tech HS (3-6) in the first round on Tuesday, January 15.

The semifinals and finals will be held at Arsenal Tech HS on Saturday, January 19 and Monday, January 21. Both of the varsity semifinal games and the varsity final will be webcast on Indiana Sports Radio Network (SRN).
