ANDERSON — Both Lapel and Pendleton Heights basketball programs had representation at the annual Indiana Basketball All-Star Classic.

The event kicked off at 10:30 a.m. with both the boys and girls Junior Game 1, Junior Game 2 followed at 1 p.m., and the Futures games took place at 4 and 6:30 p.m.

Brothers Brode and Bode Judge took the floor in the Junior Game 2, and while siblings, and teammates on the Bulldogs, they were on opposite sides on Saturday. Brode was part of the Team Red roster, while Bode put on the jersey for Team White.

Team Red came out on top 100-81, helped by the scoring of Brode.
