Participants for the 2007 boys and girls Idaho State High School All-Star Basketball Games were announced Monday by the North Idaho College Athletics Department.
The fourth annual statewide all-star game is scheduled for Saturday, April 14 at NIC’s Christianson Gym in Coeur d’Alene. The games are sanctioned by the Idaho High School Activities Association.
The event will be a doubleheader format with high school seniors playing on teams representing northern and southern Idaho. The competition begins with the girls’ game at 1 p.m. followed by the boys’ game at 3:30 p.m. The event will include a three-point shooting contest with the girls competing against the boys and a dunk contest between the games.
Players were chosen by a selection committee of sportswriters and broadcasters from throughout the state. The committee selected 12 players, two alternates and coaches for the four teams. The South swept both contests last season, defeating the North boys 109-101, and crushing the North Girls 103-46.
Admission to the game is $6 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door, at sponsor locations and at local area high schools.
The games are cosponsored by Pepsi, Century 21 Beutler and Associates, the Coeur d’Alene Resort and the NIC Booster Club.
