"Border BattlE" 
​sponsored by ST Luke's orthopedics & Sports medicine

Each spring, DAYBA produces the "Border Battle" All-Star Game Sponsored by St. Luke's Orthopedics, pitting elite players from Northeastern Minnesota vs. players from North Central Wisconsin.  This is the premiere all-star game in the Northland! 

At the 2018 event, we picked a Mike Gerber MVP award winner for both the girl's game and the boy's game.  Each MVP — Brooke Olson of Rice Lake, WI; and Nate Seelye of Grand Rapids, MN — received an engraved bronze basketball.
