Nine girls and seven boys from the Treasure Valley were selected for the 2019 state all-star high school basketball games, according to rosters released Monday.

The 16th annual seniors-only all-star game is March 23 at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene. The girls game tips off at 1 p.m. followed by the boys at 3:30 p.m. The event also includes 3-point and dunk contests.

The rosters primarily pit players from the Boise metropolitan area against the rest of the state, with a few exceptions. Players are selected by media members throughout Idaho.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens.
