A rousing success in its debut, the Wolverine Alumni Basketball Game is set to once again reunite standouts from Polk County’s basketball past.
The 2017 alumni game will be held Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Polk County High School. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for what promises to be another entertaining evening featuring former Wolverine men and women suiting up once more and hitting the PCHS court.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students, with all proceeds going to Polk County High School’s basketball program.
Last year’s inaugural game in front of a large crowd featured teams divided by year of graduation, with the pre-2000 graduates more than holding their own before falling 112-96 to the younger alums.
For this year’s game, Polk County head boys basketball coach Antoni Staley has adopted a Tryon vs. Polk Central approach, with some “creative” roster assignments.
Those tentatively scheduled to play or coach include:
