The players of the year will be announced at the All-Star Banquet on Saturday while both the boys and girls All-Star games will be played the following day.
"What we were going for when we created the event was to really create something special for those athletes that have gone out there, put it all out there for the fans this year, and to really reward them for their senior season and their success on the floor," Jesse Smith, Sanford Sports Complex director of operations, said. "It's the least we can do to repay those athletes and give them the night, and make it special for them and make it unique."
