All-Stars align at Putnam County
GRANVILLE — Tom McGunnigal had just two hours to assemble his North squad for Saturday’s Illinois Valley All-Star Game in Granville. It was long enough to know he’d like to be able to spend more time developing their talents.
“I’d like to take this team and practice a couple times and get into some tournaments,” said McGunnigal, the longtime St. Bede coach. “It was a lot of fun getting them up and down the floor on both ends. They had good communication and nice balance, inside and outside ... I’m excited to see them play. They all wanted to go hard.”
Saturday’s Illinois Valley All-Star Games will once again feature the top senior players from 24 schools around north central Illinois. Senior players were nominated by their coaches and selected by coaches of the representing schools. The North squad includes 12 schools north of the Illinois River and 10 schools south of the river, plus Ottawa and Ottawa Marquette.
