ILLINOIS GET DOWN!

CARBONDALE HOLIDAY SHOWCASE | DECEMBER 13-14, 2024

Carbondale Illinois

Welcome to the Illinois Get Down Showcase

The tradition of basketball in the state of Illinois and surrounding states is rich with elite athletes. Even in a state where legends live, and storytelling is a way of life, there are tales of hardwood glory that remain unknown to most. “The Illinois Get Down” will draw iconic superstars, local legends, and thousands of fans to the state of Illinois, creating a unique destination for high-caliber basketball within a large and supportive community.

The state of Illinois has attracted top players, legends and professional stars together all for the love of basketball. The tradition includes veteran coaches, elite players and countless magical moments. The state of Illinois will now be the host for future legends and unforgettable success stories that will continue to flourish and give birth to new and undiscovered talent.

It only takes a few minutes of sitting in the stands to understand that something special is happening here. A DJ spins classic anthems, the public announcer shouts out local hoops pioneers, half-time entertainment and you hear the screams of enthusiastic fans in the crowd. A diverse mix of every ethnicity, culture and age group is a testament to the unifying power of sport and for local residents, “The Illinois Get Down” offers the remarkable opportunity to witness the athletic feats of the state and country’s top basketball players and student-athletes right in their own backyard.
