How to Watch the Ballislife All-American Game

The best high school basketball players in the nation have flocked to Long Beach, California, for the 7th Annual Ballislife All-American Game presented by Eastbay.

Trevon Duval, Billy Preston, Trae Young, Jaylen Hands, LiAngelo Ball, and the rest of the crew are already onsite preparing for tomorrow’s showdown. In addition to the game itself, the nation’s best prospects will also participate in a three-point contest and a dunk contest prior to the game.

If you can’t make it out to Long Beach for the game, don’t sweat it. You can still watch all of the action from home. The event will be exclusively livestreamed on Facebook starting at 7 p.m. ET on May 6. And stay locked to Eastbay’s social channels for behind-the-scenes access all weekend long.

The History

Ballislife provides the most comprehensive coverage of high school and grassroots basketball in the country. Ballislife created a hub for fans, coaches, and players to follow along with all of the top highlights, top players, and best games. As an authoritative figure in the game, Ballislife challenged the traditional all-star game selection process and created their own all-star game with “the goal of selecting the most deserving players, regardless of geography, mainstream player rankings, or shoe affiliations.”

Since the first game in 2011, the Ballislife All-American Game has racked up an impressive list of participants. Previous attendees include Lonzo Ball, Miles Bridges, Thon Maker, Skal Labissiere, Stanley Johnson, Tyler Ulis, Zach LaVine, and Glenn Robinson III.

Full Roster

Previous Ballislife All-American games have featured a stacked roster, but this year might be the most talented group yet.

The full roster features Trae Young, Trevon Duval, Billy Preston, Jaylen Hands, Kris Wilkes, Brandon McCoy, PJ Washington, Ethan Thompson, Cody Riley, Isaiah Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt, Quade Green, Ira Lee, LiAngelo Ball, Charles O’Bannon Jr., Chris Lykes, Mo Bamba, Brian Bowen, Brandon Randolph, Elizjah Scott, Jalek Felton, Jaren Jackson Jr., Savion Flagg, Kezie Okpala, Jalen Hill, and Collin Sexton.
