FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EVANSVILLE, IN – January 17, 2019 – The Greater Evansville Sports Hall of Fame has created another youth sporting event for the Greater Evansville area called the GESHOF High School Seniors Hoop Showcase, an event for local high school senior basketball players. East Evansville seniors from Bosse, Harrison, Memorial, and Castle will compete against West Evansville seniors of Central, North, Reitz, and Mater Dei in a two-game matchup with one girls’ game followed by a boys’ game. The showcase games will take place at Bosse High School on April 14, 2019.
“We wanted to give local seniors one more chance to play ball before graduation,” said Greater Evansville Sports Hall of Fame President and CEO, Tim Turpin. “And on top of that, we’re giving them another opportunity to earn scholarship money for college.”
Each game will end with a scholarship presentation of $500 to a deserving player. Part of each scholarship will be donated by the Greater Evansville Sports Hall of Fame and the other portion by event sponsors.
The East vs. West games at Bosse will start at 2:00 p.m. with the girls’ senior game first and then at 4:00 p.m. for the boys’ game. Stay tuned for further announcements and updates.
