Several high school and middle school basketball players from Ohio will participate in the Buckeye Elite Showcase Sept. 22-23 in Columbus, but the event will also include a Michigan vs. Ohio all-star game at 5 p.m. Saturday. From the press release:
New this year are the Ohio North vs South Challenge games, which are currently scheduled for Saturday afternoon starting about 11:00am. These “challenge” games will pit the top 10 players from northern Ohio against their counter parts from southern Ohio in rising grades 6-9th (2018 -2015).
