A Big Basketball Weekend Coming Up In Town

Basketball fans will be converging on the city this weekend for the National Basketball League's all-star weekend which starts with the all-star mixer at Vitos Friday at 5. 

Mill Rats coach David Cooper tells CHSJ News there will be a youth clinic held at Harbour Station this Saturday along with the Legends game, 3 point shootout and the fan's favourite.........the slam dunk contest.

The all-star game itself will be played Sunday afternoon at 2.

Cooper says a basketball all-star game is better suited to individual athletic talents being showcased than other sports.

Ticket prices to see the all-star game range from 13 dollars up to 81 for a front row, courtside seat.
