The Tennessee/Georgia all-star basketball games are set Tuesday night at Notre Dame High School..
The TN/GA girls play at 6 p.m. with a 3-point contest at halftime.
In between games there will be a dunk contest.
TN/GA boys will play at 8 p.m. with 3-point contest for the boys at halftime.
Caroline Smith and Kayla Beavers (both from Bradley Central), along with Melanie Barker from Sequatchie County are all headed to play for Lee University next season.
Chadarryl Clay, from GPS, has signed to play in the SEC, with the Auburn Tigers.
"I have coached the Tennessee girls several times, and this is the most talented group I have had," said Coach Jason Hill (of Signal Mountain) "Almost all of these girls will be playing in college next year."
Bradley Central's Kayla Beavers said, "I am excited to be able to play one more high school game with a lot of girls I have had to compete against through the years. I'm also looking forward to teaming up and playing with Caroline and Melanie since we will all be playing together at Lee next year."
"It's weird to be teaming up with guys that have bee the 'enemy' for the last few years," said Bradley Central's Justin Houston. "I'm excited though, because it is a great group of guys and there is a bunch of talent out here."
"This is talented bunch of guys this year," said Tennessee head coach Jesse Nayadley. "I just want to put these guys in rotations where they can be successful, because they all can play. There will be a lot of running up and down the court Tuesday night, I can promise you that." Nayadley led the Owls to the Elite 8 in the state tournament, and it was his 4th trip to the state tournament, as he notched three state Final Four appearances during an 11-year coaching stint at Notre Dame.
Greg Elkins will be leading a very talented group of Georgia boys Tuesday night. Coach Elkins led the Ringgold Tigers to a very successful 20-7 season and a trip to the state tournament.
Billy Martin of Chattooga, who will be coaching the Georgia girls, said, "The Tennessee girls will probably have more speed, but I think we will have more size and inside presence. This should be a lot of fun." He will be assisted in the game by Coach Renee Martin.
