The 2015 UIC Senior All-Star Basketball Games provided a Fun evening for players and fans.

The rich, full night of exciting basketball featured two games and five contests.

The two games were played with college rules of 20-minute halves, and the teams were comprised of players regardless of school affiliation. Thus, teammates faced each other as rivals for the first time. So, Thomas Hanson could steal the ball from fellow TigerHawk Trystan Riley, or Joe Wolfe could block the shot of West Central teammate Matt Langel on the break.

The evening started with the girls’ game as 18 young ladies stepped onto the court for their last appearance as high school basketball players.
