Tuesday the East and West all-star teams practiced for the first time at Midwestern State.
For some of the players, its a chance to lace up their sneakers one last time and play some hoops.
Carlos Pacheco, East all-star(Avalon H.S.)-"It's a blessing. A true blessing. I know a lot of kids don't have the opportunity to be playing basketball. And a lot of them wish that they could. But I am happy I get the opportunity."
Kentzie Rhodes, East All-Star(Crowell H.S.)
"It is really a surprise to me because I was an alternate. I just got called a couple of weeks ago. But it is exciting because I get to play my game again. I get to show the people what I am made of on last time."
