The 19th Annual Sun Stroke All V.I. Hoop Classic kicks off Saturday, April 15, 2017. There will be a Celebrity Basketball game beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Ronald Charles Gym at St. Croix Central High School. There will be a Women's High School All Star game at 6:30 p.m. and a Men's High School All Star game beginning at 8:00 p.m. The Celebrity Game will be highlighted by Brandon Royal of this year's NBC The Voice, Paebak along with other Virgin Islands artists and media personalities.
The Special Guest of the evening will be the return of 2005 Pro Bowl Selection and Crucian Hanik Milligan.
This tournament has been successfully used to showcase the best high school basketball players in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands since it's inception. This year Sun Stroke has solicited the services of Max Ivan of D1Nations from Arizona to provide professional evaluations of the players that could lead to scholarship opportunities. In addition to Saturday night's activities there will be an Open Run at noon in the presence of Mr. Max Ivany for talented underclassmen that were not selected to the All Star game and players just out of high school at noon. This emphasizes the purpose of the event which is to provide talented basketball players an opportunity for athletic scholarships.
The event is also loads of fun so in that vein the Miami Heat Mascot Burnie will be performing and there will be giveaways from the tournament's primary sponsor Tim Duncan, the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat.
This event has also highlighted the biggest names in VI music as well as the best basketball players in the territory. Two of the best young bands on St. Croix in Hypa Aktiv and In-Stylez will work together to entertain the crowd in the post game Jam Session that ends at midnight. The band that gets the crowd most involved gets a bonus. Admission for this event is $10. EVERYTHING is covered by the event organizers at no cost to the players and coaches. The event is sponsored in part by Tim Duncan, adidas, The Department of Education, Banco Popular, Bates Trucking, United Sporting Goods and Sun Stroke Promotions.
