On March 27 St. Cloud State was the site of the 2015 Minnesota State High School Basketball Coaches Association All Star game.

Teams were selected by high school coaches from across the state.

In the first game the Gold team went up against the Maroon team. The game was played in two 20 minute halves. Both teams subbed every five minutes.

Both teams played very little defense in the first half. This game was an offensive showcase.

Maroon’s Brindley Theisen came up with deep 3-point baskets as his team fed him the ball in spots where he could shoot it.

The Gold team played both man-to-man and zone defense in the first half.

The Maroon offense slowed down in the first half. They did however keep attacking the basket.

At halftime the score was Gold 67, Maroon 56.

As the second half got underway Gold continued to push the ball down the floor and score baskets in transition.

Gold’s Jonathan Conyers came up with deep 3-point baskets midway through the second half. His teammates did a good job of getting him the ball in spots where he could shoot it.

Both teams were not afraid to shoot the deep 3-point shot.

Even through the Maroon offense struggled they still were able to come up with shots in the second half.

Sid Thomes came up with the winning shot to give Gold the 117-115 victory over Maroon.
