Today at Rutgers University at Camden, some of the best graduating high school basketball players got together and competed one last time against each other. A game of this type can create all kinds of thoughts in the heads of athletes, the one thought that is prevalent is no one wants to be embarrassed. There were some embarrassing moments but on the whole was a well played game. That speaks volumes to the ability of the coaches to make teams out of athletes that may have played a more prominent role on their own teams.
The final score was no indication as to how the two teams competed. The East team led by MVP Chris Bratelli from Highland 16 points, five rebounds, and three blocked shots earned a 116-97 victory over the West All-Stars.
