What is great about this event is that there are a number of players who have not committed to a college. This game usually attracts several college coaches, so it gives the youngsters one last chance for some great exposure.

In addition, the eighth grade All-Star game allows fans to see many of the players they will be following in high school.

The Carino Club has for decades done an excellent job promoting basketball in South Jersey and this All-Star doubleheader has been an annual tradition that gives most of the seniors one last chance to represent their high school in an exemplary fashion, while for many, getting some needed exposure in front of college coaches.
