NIC announces All-Star Basketball Game participants
North Idaho College Athletics and the NIC Booster Club have announced the rosters for the 14th Annual Idaho Statewide Basketball All-Star Games presented by Idaho Central Credit Union. The doubleheader format, scheduled for March 25, will match boys and girls basketball players from high schools in the Boise metropolitan area against players from the rest of the state, and will be played at NIC’s Christianson Gymnasium in Coeur d’Alene. Senior players from all classifications are eligible for selection on the all-star teams.
The games are being played later this year than in previous years to accommodate NIC’s conference change from the National Junior College Athletic Association to the Northwest Athletic Conference. The NWAC holds their conference championships on the second and third weekends of March. The selection committee included representatives from the news media throughout the state. The selection committee selected 12 all-stars for all four teams, with two alternates on each team. Game times are 1 p.m. for the girls and 3:30 p.m. for the boys, with a slam-dunk contest and three-point shooting contest between the games.
