The freshmen and sophomore all-star games will tip at 7 p.m., while the junior and senior all-star games will follow at 8 p.m. The showcase benefit will feature many of the top players in Illinois and is a benefit that raises money for needy children. This year's proceeds from the event will benefit the JG Foundation, which in the past has raised money for organizations like the National Children's Cancer Society, Make A Wish Foundation, Red Cross, Visions For Tomorrow Foundation and many other groups.
Throughout the night there will be a 3-point contest, raffles and other activities.
The fall league playoffs on Sunday concludes a league that features over 30 high school teams and an additional 16 frosh/soph teams. Games begin at 8 a.m. and concludes with two championship games at 8 p.m.
