The Azalea Orthopedics All-Star high school basketball games have been set for April 2, 2016 in the Wagstaff Gymnasium on the Tyler Junior College campus. The game, which is in its Thirteenth year, is sponsored by Azalea Orthopedics. The Classic gives high school seniors in the East Texas area the opportunity to showcase their talent for colleges and hometown fans.
Area seniors are nominated by their high school coaches and are selected by an All Star selection panel. “We are pleased to announce this year’s coaches for both the girls and boys teams for the All-Star Classic,” said Dan Fuller, Azalea head athletic trainer and coordinator of the annual event. They are as follows:
Boys East Team

“In the past we have had some very talented athletes play in these games, we are very fortunate to continue with that tradition,” explains Fuller. He also added that areas of East and West divide teams geographically.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. on April 2. The girls’ game time is slated for 5:30 p.m. with the boys’ game to follow at approximately 7:00 p.m. Ticket prices are $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children under the age of 10.
