Rising Stars Athletics is facilitating basketball all-star games between Palm Beach and Marion Counties.
A team of 16 Palm Beach County seniors will face Marion County’s squad March 20 at John I. Leonard. There will be a girls all-star game at 6 p.m. and the boys will play after that.
An organizer of the event said Palm Beach County coaches nominated players — only seniors are eligible to play in post-season all-star games — and the rosters were determined by a selection committee. Here is the Palm Beach County team:
Brice Jenkins, Summit Christian
Damian Bivens, Summit Christian
Jason Romero, Dwyer
Chris Minor, Palm Beach Lakes
Javarious Williams, Palm Beach Lakes
Anthony Davis, Boca Raton
Willy Bechara, Boca Raton
Carlos Albertio, John I. Leonard
Isiah Taylor, John I. Leonard
Evan Lawlor, Spanish River
Jason Kolar, King’s Academy
Demaris Freeman, Park Vista
Tavon Bellamy, Palm Beach Gardens
Jonathon Shelton, Forest Hill
Shane Thompson, Lake Worth
David Jones, Trinity Christian
Coach: Jim Howell, John I. Leonard
Tickets will be available at the game: $10 for adults, $5 for children.
The usual Palm Beach County all-star games took place at AmericanAirlines Arena last weekend. That game had typically been held in West Palm Beach and pitted this county’s all-stars against those of either Dade or Broward County. The Palm Beach team beat a team from southwest Florida.
