LINWOOD, NJ - This was the 6th annual 24/7 Gthing All Star Classic game which was held at the Belhaven Middle School, this is were it all started for Kylee Watson who will be attending Oregon University on a full basketball scholarship next year. Last year we did the event in Atlantic City, but this year we decide to take the show just a few miles out of the city to Linwood. The heat wave was definitely in the building this particular day with some of the hot names from the 2023 and 2024 class, it was like any showdown this day just waiting for it to kick off in get underway to see who's who on this nice summer day.


It was a typical North vs South game that kept the gym rocking all afternoon, the gym temperature was set at 65 degrees before we kick off the first game and that was with the 2024's. The youngsters set the tone for 2023's and when it was all said in done, the temperature got higher because of the fire that was brought on by the youngsters this day.


Coming into the gym there was high expectation, this year we went farther North. This roster had a few special player's on the list, we had Blake O'Grady and Mariana Padilla come up from Massachusetts to represent Bay State Jaguars, also farther South we had Darrionna Howard come up from North Carolina to represent Carolina Flames. We will take you inside and give you the scoop on some of the players that participated in the All Star Classic.
