Kearney all-star basketball games still on despite flooding

KEARNEY — The Mr. Basketball & Miss Basketball Kearney Senior All-Star Games will feature the area’s top seniors from last winter.

Both games will be played on Sunday with the girls game starting at 6:30 p.m. with the boys to follow at the UNK Health & Sports Center.

Tickets, which get you into action for both all-star games are $5 for adults and $4 for youth (k-8).

With the recent flood that devastated the motel district, the Miss Basketball Showcase scheduled for July 12-14 has been canceled.

"This is only the second time in 28 years and more than 400 events that we have had to cancel an event in entirety due to the weather," Mr. and Miss Basketball Tournament founder Doug Koster siad. "Our community will regroup and we will have the opportunity to host the event again next year."
