The NMHSCA has reconstructed its All-Star Basketball Format in 2019. The NMHSCA first hosted North vs. South all-star games in 1946. Most recently, a north and south team would be chosen in classes 1A/2A, 3A/4A, & 5A/6A for a total of six girls’ teams and six boys’ teams. Each team would play one game against the corresponding classification. Starting in the summer of 2019, the NMHSCA divided the state into four regions. Within each region, schools were determined to be either large school or small school based on whether the school’s enrollment was in the upper half or lower half of all schools’ enrollment. The new format has two boys’ teams and two girls’ teams for a total of four teams from each of the four regions. The first night of All-Star competition has regional teams playing a second region’s team. The second night of All-Star competition, the winning regional teams play and the losing regional teams play. The NMHSCA All-Star hosts sixteen all-star teams and sixteen all-star basketball games. One-hundred and ninety-two athletes and forty-eight coaches participate in New Mexico’s North vs. South All-Star platform. This is going to be a New Mexico tradition.
