Wilmington, N. C. – March 12, 2020: Due to the continuing public health concerns associated with
COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the North Carolina Coaches Association (NCCA) and the South Carolina Athletic
Coaches Association (SCACA) have cancelled the 2020 Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games. The
annual event scheduled for March 28 in Wilmington, North Carolina features the top public high school
senior boys and girls basketball players from North Carolina and South Carolina.
“Our concern for the safety and well-being of these young student-athletes, as well as for spectators
attending the games from communities across the two-state area, coaches, and essential personnel,
prompted this decision,” said Phil Weaver, co-executive director of the NCCA. “We congratulate the
selected players on their athletic accomplishments, and wish them much success as they continue their
education and athletic endeavors.”
“In addition, we want to thank House of Raeford Farms FLOCK for their sponsorship and dedication to
the Carolinas Classic over the past three years,” commented Shell Dula, executive director of the SCACA.
“They join our coaches’ associations in fully supporting this decision.”
