All-Stars Selected for 27th Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Games

    MONTGOMERY – Twenty-four seniors have been selected to represent Alabama in the 27th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Games to be played at Dunn-Oliver Acadome on the Alabama State University campus on Friday, March 17. 
       The Alabama teams, comprised of 12 senior boys and 12 senior girls, were announced Wednesday by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA). The girls’ game will tip off at 5 p.m. and the boys’ game will follow at 7.  
        The games were played in Mississippi last year with the hosts winning two close games. Mississippi’s girls evened the series at 13-13 with a 78-77 win over Alabama, and the Mississippi boys won 85-83. Alabama’s boys hold a slim 14-12 edge in that series.
        Emanuel Bell of Wenonah and Barbara Roy of Locust Fork will be the Alabama girls’ all-star coaches. Bell, who has a 485-178 career record over 23 seasons, will serve as head coach.  His Lady Dragons, 31-3 this season, have won four Class 5A state titles in a row. Roy guided Locust Fork (35-1) to the Class 3A state championship this season, the first in school history. She is 308-151 in 15 years as head coach.  Cold Springs’ Tammy West is serving as administrative coach.
      Coaches for Alabama’s boys are Midfield’s Darrell Barber and Lanett’s Richard Carter. Barber will serve as head coach. He is 177-80 overall and led Midfield (28-6) to the Class 3A state title last week, the third state championship in his tenure as head coach. Carter guided Lanett (25-7) to its second straight Class 2A boys’ title in 2017. He has been coaching for 40 years and has a career mark of 652-220. Administrative coaches are David Good of Mountain Brook and Jamie Lee of Grissom.
        Headlining the boys’ squad are eight players who competed in the AHSAA’s 95th State Basketball Tournament last week. Among them are 6-foot-7 guard/forward Herbert Jones of Class 4A state champion Hale County, 6-4 guard Shy’im Cunningham of 3A state champ Midfield, guards D.J. Heath and Kevion Nolan of 1A state champ Sacred Heart Catholic. Jones has already signed with Alabama.
        Others on the squad already signed to D-I scholarships already are 6-10 center Garrison Brooks of Auburn High School (Mississippi State), 6-5 Fairhope guard Tevin Brown (Murray State) and 6-9 Pelham forward Alex Reese (Alabama) and 6-4 Spain Park guard Jamal Johnson (Memphis University). Brooks led Auburn to the 7A state finals. Other all-stars in last week’s state tourney were 6-7 guard/forward Javan Johnson of Austin, 6-4 Midfield guard Shy’im Cunningham, 6-6 forward DeAndre Robinson of Monroe County and 6-7 forward Myles Parker of Madison Academy. Rounding out the team is guard Malik Burnett of Lee-Huntsville.
     The Alabama girls’ roster lists four players that participated in last week’s state tournament and three already signed to D-1 schools. South Carolina has landed 5-11 Brewbaker Tech guard Bianca Jackson and 5-10 Gadsden City guard Haley Troup.  Unique Thompson of Faith Academy, a 6-3 forward, has also signed with Auburn. Participating in last week’s state tourney were Deshler guard Nicole Shirley, Tanner forward Kirsten Brown, Wenonah forward Alexus Dye and point guard Jayla Morrow. Dye and Morrow helped the Lady Dragons win four state titles and Shirley helped Deshler win 68 straight games with the streak being broken in this year’s Class 4A finals.
  
  Both games will be live-streamed over the NFHS Network and will be broadcast over the AHSAA Radio Network.
