42nd Annual Capital Classic

WASHINGTON, DC - Rosters for the 42nd annual Capital Classic All Star Game have been finalized, featuring yet another loaded field of high school seniors.

This year's event - which will be held on Friday, April 24 at Catholic University's DuFour Center - will feature a pair of star-studded contests. The first game will match a team of Northern Virginia and Montgomery County (Md.) standouts against their counterparts from DC and Prince George's County (Md.) at 6 pm, followed by the Capital All Stars against the United States All Stars at 8 pm.
General admission tickets are $20 ($10 for students) and good for both games; they can be purchased at www.TheCapitalClassic.com. Limited VIP seats are available. A portion of the net proceeds will benefit the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the Wounded Warrior Project.

This year also marks the debut of the DMV Rising Stars 3-Point Shootout. Sponsored by Hoop Culture, the event will feature 12 top 3-point shooters. Players will compete in a preliminary shootout consisting of 6 racks of balls from 6 locations, just like the NBA 3-point contest. The top three players will compete for the title at halftime of the Capital Classic main event.

Headlining this year's group of United States All-Stars are a pair of McDonald's All-Americans in Kentucky-bound guard Isaiah Briscoe of Roselle Catholic, NJ (PICTURED) and South Carolina-bound P.J. Dozier, Jr. (Spring Valley, SC). Joining them are several other players bound for big-time programs such as Florida State, Georgetown, Louisville, North Carolina, Notre Dame and UCLA.

Representing the Capital All Stars - who are seeking to end a two-game losing streak - are Washington Post All-Met Player of the Year Abdulai Bundu and the Gatorade Players of the Year for DC (Bryant Crawford) and Maryland (Justin Robinson), as well as Wisconsin-bound forward Charlie Thomas IV.
