Rosters for the inaugural HBCU All-Star Game were announced Monday live on CBS Sports HQ. Comprised of some of the best basketball players in the four HBCU NCAA Division I and Division II conferences, the game will feature 24 All-Star selections split into two teams for the game, which is named after a pair of HBCU legends in John McLendon and Clarence "Big House" Gaines.

The game, set to take place on Sunday, April 3, during the Final Four weekend in New Orleans, will air live on CBS and be available to stream on Paramount+. It will be played at the UNO Lakefront Arena at 4 p.m. ET.

"The 24 players that have been selected represent the best in college basketball at our country's prestigious black colleges and universities," said HBCU All-Stars LLC Founder and CEO Travis L. Williams. "Our HBCU All-Stars national scouting staff did an amazing job for the past three months evaluating some of the most talented players from the 48 HBCUs. We know there were many players deserving of the opportunity to play in this game. This is history in the making and has been a long journey to get to this point, but we are just getting started and expect to put on a great event with our amazing CBS Sports partners and HBCU All-Stars staff in New Orleans."

Team McLendon will feature players from the MEAC and SIAC, including the HBCU All-Stars Willis Reed NCAA Division I National Player of the Year, Kyle Foster. Team Gaines will feature players who compete in the SWAC and the CIAA, headlined by Fayetteville State star Jalen Seegars.
