A third player, Jocie Leavold, was selected but had to withdraw.

The event featured various competitions as well as two U19 all-star showcase matches and there were firm COVID-19 protocols in place to ensure the safety of players and staff participating on the day.

Both played key roles in the victories for their teams. Wheathampstead's Rouse contributed six points and nine rebounds an an 81-76 win over Team Black while Daley, who is from Hemel Hempstead, also brought his A-game to the court.

He added 12 points and three rebounds in Team Black’s emphatic 115-70 win over Team White in the U19 men’s all-star clash.
