“We’re taking what was the St. John’s Hospital Athleticare/Sports Radio 1450 Shootout for the past twelve years and now re-naming it due to it becoming a true showcase for Springfield Area Basketball, especially the Central State Eight Conference.

'We are truly excited about bringing an entire day of competitive High School Basketball to a great venue like the PCCC. We hope all basketball fans will come out for one or all of the games on December 6th.," said Kevin O’Dea, President/General Manager Sports Radio 1450

The highlights of the day will include:

  • 8 games
  • One price, only $5
  • Special FREE Kids Area featuring face painting, carnival games, inflatables, and more
  • Shoot to win a brand new Ford from Bob Ridings in Taylorville at halftime of each Central State Game. Three contestants will have a chance to win in each game.
