The winners will be announced at the Basketball Manitoba Awards, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 15, 2023.  Basketball Manitoba will make the following changes to the traditional event for 2023, including...
  • All Graduating All-Star Games will be hosted at the Sport Manitoba Courts at 145 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg.  
  • AAAA Varsity Boys and AAAA Varsity Girls games will both begin at 10:00 am and be run simultaneously on Courts 1 and 2.  
  • A - AAA Varsity Boys and A - AAA Varsity Girls games will both begin at 12:00 pm and be run simultaneously on Courts 1 and 2.  
  • All-Star Games will be played using a "Target Score" system where the game clock will be stopped and remain off at the first interruption (violation, foul, score) with less than 4 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter.  A Target Score of the leading team's points scored so far PLUS 9 points will be determined with the winning team being the first to reach the Target Score (i.e. Game score at 4 min stoppage is 80-75, the Target Score will be 89 points).  
  • The Basketball Manitoba Awards will follow from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm at Alloway Hall located in the Manitoba Museum (across the street from Sport Manitoba), with a food and drink reception to follow the theatre-style award ceremony.
