Rosters set for 5th annual KTRE Pineywoods Showdown

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The annual KTRE all-star high school basketball game will be held April 25 with the top seniors from Angelina and Nacogdoches counties fighting for bragging rights.

The game will take place at Panther Gym at Lufkin Middle School.

One of the Nacogdoches County teams will attempt to end a four-year losing streak, as the Angelina County teams have swept their opponents every year.

The girls game will begin at 6 p.m., with the boys to tip off immediately after. Admission is $5 at the door.

All four teams have chosen a charity to play for. The winning team's charity will receive the profits from the gate.

"Now it's not about anybody out here," said Nacogdoches County boys coach Kevin Herron. "It's really about trying to do something for other people. Hopefully we will get a good number of people out to the game and no matter who wins, a great charity is going to get something out of the deal. I think that's bigger than anything."

The Angelina County boys will be playing for Harold's House, while the girls team will represent the Family Crisis Center of East Texas. The Nacogdoches County boys will represent Glory Gang Ministries, while the girls will play for The American Cancer Society.

The Nacogdoches County boys have already begun practicing for the game.

"Angelina always has some good players that are tough to stop, but our goal is going to be to stop them the best we can," Herron said.

"Winning is all that matters," said Hunter Holder of Martinsville. "I don't care if we beat them by one of 50."

"Coach talked about playing harder and I agree," said Chase Higginbotham of Chireno. "Angelina's going to come out and think it is a cakewalk and mess around, but we are going to come out and not mess around."
