All-stars compete against faculty

Allstar Basketball Preview

BYU-Idaho all-stars will be competing against faculty members and alumnae April 4.

Landon Welch, a senior studying business management and the men’s basketball coordinator, said this will be the first year the male all-star team will compete against faculty members. In past semesters the all-star team has competed against BYU-I alumni.

The all-star team that will play against a team of male faculty members consists of 10 students from the Men’s Competitive Basketball league.

Welch said the coaches nominated a few players from each of their teams to be on the male all-star team.

Welch said he, his assistant coordinators and the coaches then picked 10 of the 20 nominees to compete against the faculty members.

Matt Jones, a junior studying biology and the women’s basketball coordinator, said the 10 members of the female all-star team each came from one of the 10 teams in this semester’s women’s basketball league.

“The all-star team will then play against a team that a BYU-I alumna has put together,” Jones said.

Jones said the all-star team helps unite the best players in the league as they represent the women’s basketball program.

Jones said another thing that these competitions do is link campus events to the community. He said this really helps those that aren’t currently enrolled in school to have the opportunity to get involved and connected with BYU-I, its activities, and the spirit here.

Both all-star games will take place in the Hart Auxiliary Gym from 6-10 p.m.
