AURORA | The annual A-Town All-Star Games for Aurora’s best and brightest boys and girls basketball players — presented by Sentinel Colorado — is scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 21, beginning at noon at Gateway High School.
The 20-player rosters for the girls and boys games — as selected by the Sentinel based on the nominations/voting of city coaches — are being finalized.
The A-Town All-Star boys game is in its fifth season after it was played for the first time at Aurora Central in 2016, followed by Cherokee Trail (2017), Rangeview (2018) and Smoky Hill (2019). The A-Town All-Star girls game is in its fourth season.
The rotation between Aurora schools Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools brings it this year to Gateway, which refurbished its entire gymnasium over the summer and dedicated its new-look court to Jeff Sweet, the school’s all-time winningest coach.
Dunk and 3-point shooting contests are scheduled in between games.
Doors will open at 11 a.m. and ticket prices will be $5 for both games.
