Thursday, March 27, 2014 - by Bob

Dalton State basketball coach Tony Ingle will coach one of the teams in this Saturday’s Georgia Basketball Coaches Association (GABCA) Seniors All-Star Game at Oglethorpe University.

Oglethorpe coach Phillip Ponders announced Wednesday that the game will feature 22 players from various NAIA and NCAA Division II and III program from across Georgia. 

Roadrunner seniors Ricky Sears and Demetrice Jacobs will be on Coach Ingle’s “Dark” team.

“This is a great opportunity for DJ and RS to play and bring recognition to the Dalton State program,” Coach Ingle said. “Anytime you are recognized for your talents and efforts it is an honor and I’m sure they will put on a show.” 

“I could not say enough about what these two young men have done to create awareness for our basketball program,” added Ingle.

“I told them to ‘shoot it only when you get it’. It should be a great, relaxing night of basketball. I believe the winning coach gets an extra pepperoni on his pizza.”
