9th Annual City All Star Game to be held April 29th at CCSF

The Bay Area Warriors will again be hosting the City All Star Game in Memory of Mike Gragnani.  The game will be Friday 4/29 at CCSF.   We will have a Girls' game at 6:00 and the Boys' Game at 7:30.  Players should arrive 30 minutes before game time.  We will also have 3-point shooting Contests and a Slam Dunk Contest before the Boys game.  Per CIF rules the game is limited to Seniors only.   We will provide the players with a t-shirt uniform that they keep and there will be trophies for the contest winners and the game MVP's.   The players participate for free but we do charge $5 for admission  for fans which covers the cost of the uniforms, trophies, referees and facility.  We typically break-even or lose a little money but if there is a profit it goes to our Bay Area Warriors non-profit.  We typically draw a good crowd and the Seniors have a lot of fun(you can see some photos of last years games on our website) .   It is a great way for us to bring the San Francisco basketball community together and for the Seniors to play a final fun game to end their high school careers.   The All Star Invitees are listed below.   Please contact coach Randy at 415 418 4568 to confirm your participation

Record Breaking City All Star Game

The 8th Annual City All Star Game was again held in memory the late Coach Mike Gragnani.  The SF basketball community came together to remember Mike and have a lot of fun.   The Girls game was won by the  White Team, which was led by MVP Joleen Yang from St. Ignatius.  Katie Lo from University HS won the Girl's three point contest.   The boys game was a barnburner with the White team pulling out a 125 to 99 victory setting all sorts of City All Star Game records for scoring, 3-point Shooting and dunks.  Armani Collins had 8 dunks for the Red Team but David Parsons of SHCP and game MVP Tarrez Blaylock of Lincoln led White to a decisive victory.  Tyler Ryan of Stuart Hall was the Slam Dunk Champion and Brandon Lew of University was the 3-point Shooting Champion.   Congrats to all the 2015 City All Stars!

8th Annual City All Star Game to Tip-Off Friday (5/1) Night

City All Stars,

We will have a t-shirt uniforms for all of your you but you will need to bring your own shorts (any color), shoes and game.

The Girls game will start at 5:30.  Please try to be at CCSF by 5:00.  We will name an MVP of each game who will get a trophy.  Last year's Girls Game MVP was Danielle Palmer of International

The Boys game is projected to start around 7:15 but you should strive to be at CCSF by 6:30. Note that because we have a lot of All Stars we will play a 20-minute stopped clock game.  Last year's MVP was Deondre Otis of SHCP.

We will have the Girls and Boys 3-point contests after their respective games.  In the three point contest each shooter will have one minute to make as many 3s as they can with 2 balls, a passer and a rebounder.  There will be a first round and final round (top 4).  There will be a trophy for the 3-point champions.  last years Champions were Nik Inalsingh of Bay and Jaime Hum-Nishikado of Convent.

We will have a slam dunk contest tentatively before the Boys Game but we may move it to half time if we are running late.  We give each dunker 30 seconds to make a dunk that each judge will score 1-10.  Highest aggregate scores advance.   We typically go three rounds but that depends on the number of contestants.  There will be a trophy for the Dunk Contest.  Last year's winner was Liam O'Reilly from SHCP.

There will be a $5 cost of admission for the fans which helps us recover our costs for the uniforms, trophies, referees, etc.  We usually break even but if there is a net gain the proceeds go to the Bay Area Warriors non-profit.  Please help spread the word to your family, friends and teammates so we can get a supportive crowd.

Note the game will again be held in memory of Coach Michael Gragnani who coached at Lincoln and SI.

The rosters are below but note we reserve the right to rebalance the teams at the last minute.  We strive to put the players from the same schools on the same teams.  If you have not done so already, please RSVP.  It is a real exercise for me to track all the invitees down so please look at the rosters and if you know any of the other invitees, please encourage them (girl invitees in particular) to participate.

This game is a lot of fun to bring the greater San Francisco basketball community together and have a lot of fun in a final High School Game.   Thanks for participating.

Iphone 7.28.14 050IMG_5160 (2)  

The Bay Area Warriors-17s finished their Summer AAU season in Las Vegas going 2-2 including an especially good win over the Dallas Pacers to secure 2nd place in their pool.  The Warriors went a respectable 9-7 in the 4 NCAA sanctioned events they participated in during the Spring and Summer and 18-13 overall.  Bay Area Warriors-Blue also finished their summer in Las Vegas and closed out on high note with two wins in bracket play.  More significantly all the guys on both teams improved their games, were scouted by numerous college coaches and had a lot of fun.   We wish all the guys a lot of success in the 2014-15 high school season.
