The Lake County Senior Shootout is set for its ninth edition.
The annual high school boys and girls all-star game will be played on Friday, April 13.
A big turnout is expected for the event that also features a coed 3-point showdown and the popular slam dunk competition.
The game returns to the gymnasium at Waukegan High School.
"We had a lot of success moving the game from the College of Lake County to Waukegan High School," said coordinator Fred Fleming. "We just have a lot more access to things that we need to make this game a success as well as, a lot more hands available to make sure things run smoothly.
"This year's selection was a bit more difficult than in prior years," says Fleming. "The majority of the girls teams this year were led by underclassmen and not seniors, which made the selection process a bit more challenging."
There will be plenty of talent on the floor.
"We definitely know that you will not be disappointed by the talent and athleticism that will be on display," Fleming said. " So spread the word and come out to support our seniors in their last high school basketball game."
Tip off for the girls game is at 6 p.m. followed by the boys at 8 p.m.
Admission is $5.
