NIC to host fourth annual All-Star basketball game in April
North Idaho College and the NIC Booster Club have been approved and sanctioned by the Idaho High School Activities Association to host the fourth annual Idaho High School All-Star Game for both boys and girls basketball April 14.
The game, in doubleheader format, will match teams from Northern Idaho versus Southern Idaho and will be played in NIC’s Christianson Gym in Coeur d’Alene.
Senior players from all classifications will be eligible for selection to the All-Star teams.
The selection committee will again include representatives from the news media throughout the state who will select 12 All-Stars for each of the four teams, with two alternates on each team. All-Star teams for both squads will be determined at the conclusion of the boys’ state tournament.
The event also includes slam dunk contest and a three-point shooting competition between games between the top senior male and female shooters in the state.
The Southern Idaho boys hold a 2-1 edge in the annual event, while the Southern Idaho girls are undefeated after three years. In last year’s games, the Southern Idaho boys’ team beat the Northern Idaho team 109-101 while the Southern Idaho girls’ team crushed the Northern Idaho girls 103-46.
