Middle School Ohio vs Indiana All-Star Showdown

In collaboration with the Baylor Basketball Report(BBR) out of Indiana, the Buckeye Prep Report (BPR) will be hosting the Inaugural Middle School Ohio vs Indiana All-Star Showdown in September.  Modeled after the high school game baring the same name; the middle school version of the event will pit the top 6th, 7th and 8th graders from the Buckeye State, against the top middle school players from the Hoosier State.

The game will be held the Saturday before the fall Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase in September.  There will be 3 games (6-8th), followed by the brand new skills and drills component of the traditional Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase. This event will become an annual event, with the host site alternating between Indiana and Ohio every other year.

In the fall of 2013, Buckeye Prep will be taking teams over to Indiana to participate in the annual showdown. There is no additional cost to participate in the game, but the participants will be chosen primarily from the standout players at Buckeye Prep Showcases, other BPR events, as well as BBR's East vs. West All-Star game and other BBR sponsored events. Some invitations will be extended to up to 12 players at the conclusion of March 4th Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase.  

Participation in this first year event will offer significant exposure opportunities, including special team and individual player features on this website, other statewide media, and BBR's website that reaches numerous Indiana-based media outlets. In addition to the enhanced media exposure, players will receive special awards as well as a chance to represent their state.  More detailed information will be forthcoming.
