INDIANAPOLIS - On April 13th, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) All-Stars and the Indiana All-Stars will appear in Winona Lake, Ind., for a game at Grace College at 7:30 p.m. Among the list of Indiana All-Stars is Marian University senior and all-conference second team selection Alex Sylvester.
Headlining the ACC All-Stars' roster is hometown hero Miles Plumlee, and will also include ACC Player of the Year and Indiana native Tyler Zeller. They are expected to play the Indiana All-Stars that will include Verdell Jones III and the seniors from Indiana, as well as Robbie Hummel, Lewis Jackson and Ryne Smith from Purdue.
In addition, the Indiana All-Stars' roster will be filled by five seniors from the Mid-Central College Conference: Huntington University's Caleb Kennedy, University of Saint Francis' Qadr Owens, Grace College's Duke Johnson, Sylvester and Indiana Wesleyan University's Derrick Troyer.
TIckets are on sale at the following locations: Grace College and Warsaw High School. General admission tickets will be $10 and a limited number of VIP tickets are available for $75. VIP tickets include a post-game reception with the two All-Star teams and front row reserved seating to the game. Fans are encouraged to buy their tickets in advance because a sell-out crowd is expected, so there will only be a limited number of tickets available at the door on the day of the game. During halftime, there will be a 3-point contest and a dunk contest. Players will be available following the game for autographs.
The Champions Classic Tour is sponsored by The Sumner Group based out of North Carolina.
