INDIANAPOLIS (21Alive) - The Indiana High School Athletic Association will once again consider proposed legislation that would change high school basketball.

The Indiana Basketball Coaches Association presented Thursday a restructured four-class system for boys and girls hoops.

If approved, beginning in the 2015-16 school year, the 64 largest schools in Indiana in enrollment would make up Class 4A. The remaining schools would be divvied up as close to even as possible between the 3A, 2A and 1A classes (approximately 114 per class).

The 64-team 4A would field a 16-sectional tournament with 4 teams in each bracket.

The remaining classes would form 16 sectionals with 7 or 8 schools in each sectional.

The proposal comes from a two-year study from the IHSAA, IBCA and Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association; and it mirrors the football study that led to a sixth class last year.

The IHSAA Executive committee is scheduled to vote on the proposal on Oct. 2.
