LV All-Star Classic set
The 48th annual Lehigh Valley Senior All-Star Basketball Classic will close out the scholastic season on March 26 at Northampton Community College.
Four games will be on deck, along with the induction of the newest class of the Lehigh Valley Basketball Hall of Fame, to go along with a girls and boys’ three-point contest and a boys’ slam dunk contest.
Action gets underway at 10 a.m. with a matchup between the North and South girls followed by the three-point shooting contest. Then the East and West girls will play around noon.
The newest hall of fame class will then be inducted, which includes the late Jay Radio, who was a key figure at the East Side Youth Center and instrumental in the development of dozens of players through his involvement; former Northern Lehigh star Aimee Ortner; former Nazareth standout Erika Livermore and ex-Southern Lehigh great Erin Owens.
