Having been involved in the Nancy Rehm/Border Wars Classic for the past decade, it is weird for me to ask this question: But are there too many all-star basketball games?
It seems like there are more and more every year. It used to be Indiana-Kentucky, North-South and Border Wars.
Now we also have an all-star game involving teams from the NIC vs. NLC, PostyourT.org games, games about "Hoosiers" the movie and a class basketball game that just popped up.
Kids are seemingly always making decisions on what all-star game to play in.
The two all-star game rule for NCAA Division I athletes has also cropped up a couple of times, involving Canterbury's Tabitha Gerardot and Warsaw's Kelci Freds.
In the last 10 years, I had never seen that rule be an issue, and it probably never will again.
And the funny thing about it is everybody thinks their all-star game is the one to play in. Organizers are constantly tugging at basketball players to be in their game.
With all that said, don't forget the Nancy Rehm/Border Wars games are Saturday at Saint Francis, with the girls game at 5 p.m. and the boys at 7:15 p.m.
Don't miss it. But if you do, there will be another one right around the corner.
