Columbia County has always taken a back seat to some of the surrounding areas when it came to basketball. However, Saturday’s CSRA All-Star Classic proved the gap is slowly closing.
The event was held at Paine College’s HEAL Athletic Complex and featured four games. The middle school girls played first, followed by the middle school boys contest. By the second half of game No. 2, the gym, which seats 2,400, was full to capacity and the fire marshall would not let anyone else in the venue.
