The boys state basketball semifinals and finals, which have been played at Cole Field House since 1956, are expected to move into the $108 million Comcast Center next year.

"We have every intention of going and they [Maryland officials] have told us they would love to have us," said Ned Sparks, executive director of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association.

Sparks said the only roadblock would be the cost.

"We realize there might be a slight increase because of the new facility," Sparks said, "and we know they're trying to accommodate us."

Sparks said the first state tournament at Cole was held March 15-16, 1956. Forty-six years later the tournament will be played on those same dates.

"We've had quite a few memorable games there at Cole," Sparks said.
