NCCA East-West All-Stars Basketball Tonight/Monday Night at the Greensboro Coliseum

NCCA 2022 East-West Basketball
Tonight/Monday, July 11, 2022 at the Greensboro Coliseum

Women’s game at 6:30 p.m./Men’s game at 8:30 p.m.

The East-West All-Star Games have lived up to their billing of seeing tomorrow’s stars today, as many former all-star players wear NCAA National Championship rings, Super Bowl rings, NBA Championship rings, or have participated in soccer’s World Cup.

The first East-West All-Star Basketball Game was played in 1949 at Guilford College’s Alumni Gym which seated almost 900 fans.

The game site moved around for a few years until the 4500 seat gym at what is now Grimsley High School opened in 1954. The All-Star game was the first game played in that gym. The first basket scored in competition was by the East’s Charlie Adams who for many years served as the Executive Director of the NC High School Athletic Association.

When the Greensboro Coliseum opened in 1960, the game moved there. The coliseum has been the site for the 1974 NCAA finals, many ACC Men’s and Women’s Tournaments and NCAA Regional games.

The first women’s East-West All-Star Game was in 1975. The 2020 Games were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but resumed in 2021.

It is rare that a player competes without already having secured a college scholarship and an impressive list of NCAA men’s and women’s stars have been East-West participants.
