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.

“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.”
