Carlos Knox and the folks at Knox Indy Pro Am are putting on another exhibition game with plenty of NBA talent this Sunday, November 6th at 4:00PM. The Knox IPA All-Stars will take on the Rio All-Stars, a collection of NBA players put together by free agent (Miami Heat) guard Mario Chalmers.
The game is billed as the "King of the Castle" because it will be played at Chrysler Fieldhouse in New Castle, one of the classic high school gyms in the state, also considered the largest high school gym in the country. As we learned from the first game at UIndy, the players expected to play are subject to change, but the initial names would put on quite a show. From the press release, here is the info on those expected to participate.
Zach Hahn, former New Castle and Butler University standout, is scheduled to join the Knox Indy Pro Am All-Stars and former Bulldog teammates Gordon Hayward (Brownsburg High School, Utah Jazz) and Shelvin Mack (Washington Wizards) along with many other Indiana ties including Eric Gordon, Jr. (North Central High School, Indiana University, LA Clippers), George Hill (Broad Ripple High School, IUPUI, Indiana Pacers), JaJuan Johnson (Franklin Central High School, Purdue University, Boston Celtics), Zach Randolph (Marion High School, Memphis Grizzlies), Jeff Teague (Pike high School, Atlanta Hawks), D.J. White (Indiana University, Charlotte Bobcats), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), and Lance Stephenson (Indiana Pacers).
Expected to suit up for the Rio All-Stars include Mario Chalmers (Miami Heat), Josh Selby (Memphis Grizzlies), Darrell Arthur (Memphis Grizzlies), John Wall (Washington Wizards), Alec Burks (Utah Jazz), Brandon Rush (Indiana Pacers), Brandon Knight (Detroit Pistons), Christian Eyenga (Cleveland Cavs), Cory Brewer (Dallas Mavericks), and Kansas twin standouts Marcus Morris (Houston Rockets), and Markieff Morris (Phoenix Suns).
The Rio All-Stars will have plenty of Kansas Jayhawks along with a lot of other young talent if most of those expected make the trek to New Castle. Fortunately, this time around the price point is much more palatable with tickets at just $10 for general admission. With the game slated to start at 4:00PM you can buy tickets at the door starting at 3:00PM.
