You read that right. Sudden death.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Danville’s Bryce Staats, who represented the South squad. “It was fun to come out here with the District 11 stars. It was just fun to play with them. I always like good competition. It’s really an honor. I had fun with it.”

Staats, who scored four points, was not the only local individual honored.

“I think that it goes back to the kids that we have,” said Fredericktown coach Mark Delaney, who coached the South squad. “With the four seniors that we had. We just had a special year. Our kids just made my job a lot easier, so it’s really a tribute to them, not so much me.”

Danville coach Doug Selvey, who also coached the South, had one more chance to share the bench with Staats.
