Lions All-Star boys preview series

News

The best of North Dakota basketball first got together Friday to practice for the Lions All-Star game, and for some, just to be on a court again was a thrill.

“I’m excited to get back on the court,” Wyatt Carr said. “You know, this year I broke my foot four weeks into my senior season.”

And for all of them, to be able to play in the yearly game is very special.

“For me, it’s just nice to get with this group of guys that I’ve played against and with in AAU for so long,” Aanen Moody said.

For guys like Moody, getting to play in this All-Star game has always been a goal since childhood.

“I grew up around a really big and helpful basketball community,” Moody said. “So this game has always kind of been in my rear view. To finally be here is just pretty cool. To finally play with the best in the state.”

Because getting this concentration of talent on one court isn’t your everyday occurrence.

“There’s great players everywhere, so to finally come together and be able to compete against and with each other is pretty cool, I think,” Moody said.

And one thing both Class A and B players can agree on is that the games will not disappoint.

Said Carr, “Lot of competitiveness and up-tempo. It’s going to be a lot of athletes on the court at once, so it’ll be fun.”
