Note: The following is a press release regarding the annual Carolina Classic All-Star Basketball Games.

Due to the continuing public health concerns associated with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the North Carolina Coaches Association (NCCA) and the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association (SCACA) have cancelled the 2021 Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games. The annual event, planned for Wilmington, features the top public high school senior boys and girls basketball players from North Carolina and South Carolina.

“As happened last year, our concern for the safety and well-being of these young student-athletes, as well as for spectators attending the games from communities across the two-state area, coaches, and essential personnel, prompted this decision,” said Phil Weaver, co-executive director of the NCCA, and Shell Dula, executive director of the SCACA.

Both state coaches associations will name 2021 Carolinas Classic All-Star teams to honor the 40 student-athletes for their achievements in early February.
