Benton head coach Chris Nail and senior Luke Vance will participate in the Arkansas Activities Association All-Star basketball game tonight in Fayetteville.
â€śIt is a big honor because you are voted on by your peers,â€ť Nail said. â€śWeâ€™ve had a good time up here and Iâ€™ve met some really good kids.
â€śIt has been a great experience.â€ť
Nail said he would use this time to talk shop and maybe learn some new strategies from the coaches.
â€śIâ€™m around some good coaches up here and we talk a lot of ball,â€ť Nail said. â€śYou always want to do things that are successful.â€ť
