The high school basketball season is set to begin Thursday night for many teams in the St. Cloud metro area. The Apollo boys basketball team will take on the Storm at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School.

Apollo head coach Jason Allen joined WJON's "Hang Up and Listen" to discuss the roster this season, whether he is used to seeing his basketball players playing football, the development of Thomas Diew, why basketball shouldn't be the most important thing for his players and more.

"Hang Up and Listen" airs Monday through Friday from 1-2 p.m. on WJON.
