Recap: The 1987 game offered a sneak peek for fans, as it was the first with the new 3-point line that was instituted in the IHSA the next season. The Red team made more, but the Blue team won the rebounding battle 57-41, led by Polo’s Chris Dusing’s 13. Amboy’s Derek Jacobson won the first 3-point contest, making 7-of-15. AFC’s Mike Smith led the Red team with 21 points. The Blue team was coached by Glenn McPherson (Dixon), and the Red team by Tom Allen (Newman).
