As we draw to the close of the high school season and near the NCAA tournament, All-Star games featuring the nations finest high school seniors. We tend to think of the McDonald's All-American game being the cream of the crop, followed closely by the Hoop Summit and Jordan Brand Classic. The oldest high school All-Star game, with its 40th anniversary taking place this year, is the Kentucky Derby Festival Classic.

While this game may not have as many top ranked stars as a few of the other All-Star games, it gives some of the players that were passed over a chance to show their stuff. Their are a few McDonald's All-Americans featured in Jarrell Martin, Keith Frazier and Jabari Bird, while some seen as possible snubs such as Austin Nichols, Robert Hubbs, Zak Irvin and Tyler Ennis also garnered selections. 20 players were selected and the game will take place April 19 in Louisville's Freedom Hall.
