The Small School (1A, 2A, 3A and 4A) All-Star Game will be played at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Arlington Lamar. The games will have a pre-set format, according to the TGCA website. It is detailed as follows: The game will consist of two 18-minute halves. In the first half the clock will stop at 12 minutes and again at six minutes for substitutions. In the second half the clock will stop at 14 minutes, 10 minutes and 6 minutes. A playing system of four players will be used with one spot used for free substitutions. The coaches will need to declare before the game and at halftime the three groups of player distinctions.

FIRST HALF: Playing time will be divided into three six-minute sessions. Group 1 will play the first six minutes, Group 2 the second six minutes and Group 3 the last six minutes. The fifth player of each session will be selected from the two groups not playing at the time. The free player may be substituted during a six-minute period.

SECOND HALF: The same format will be followed in the second half, but using three four-minute sessions. The last six minutes of the second half will be free substitution.The assistant scorekeeper and the team monitors will need a list of the playing groups so they can monitor the substitutions being made. In case or injury or illness, one player from the groups may play in two of the sessions, or she may be substituted for during the half.

RESULTS: Jaelyn Knight jumped center for the Red Team which led 45-43 at halftime. She went on to score 7 points on 2/3 2-point field goals and 1/2 3-point field goals, and had 1 steal, 2 assists, and 2 offensive and 2 defensive rebounds in route to a 87-58 win.
