SUWANEE, GA (CBS46) -

Stars of a different kind took to the basketball court for the Final Four weekend.

It was the first Final Four Friday game featuring Wounded Warrior Amputees. They took on a group of all-star players made up of NBA, NFL, and MLB stars.

Professional athletes like former NBA player Kevin Willis said they were honored to compete against the country's real heroes.

"You're supporting something or men who go out and risk their lives every day and come back and their limbs are gone. So, when I was asked to come out it's a no brainer. Anytime," said Willis.

Fans got a chance to meet the players, get free autographs and pictures.

The game took place at Peachtree Ridge High School in Gwinnett County.
