NORFOLK, Neb. - The region's top athletes will put their skills on display.

"People are going to come, they want to see what you can do and showcase what you guys got," said Joe Wendte, head coach at Wakefield.

40 seniors representing 30 different schools will compete in the Northeast Nebraska All-Star Basketball Game Friday.

"It's going to be a lot of fun," said Lacey Sprakel, Crofton graduate and Dakota Wesleyan commit. "I plan to have a lot of fun, getting to meet a lot of new girls."

These will be some of the players' last games.

"I'm glad to just be here and have fun and play one more time," said Blake Brown, a Wakefield graduate.

Brown will retire his basketball jersey, but he will take his football talents to Morningside.
