Central Section championship teams will be well represented and some of the most prominent talent in North Yosemite League history also will be on display in a North/South Senior All-Star Basketball tripleheader on Saturday at Fresno City College.
Fourteen boys and girls players from section champions, ranging from Division I to V, will participate in a day that will tip off with the Elite Seniors Boys at 3 p.m. That will be followed by North/South matchups in girls (5p.m.) and boys (7 p.m.).
Section two-year reigning D-I titlist Edison will impact both boys games with Daemar Potts and Malcolm Raines for the Elite North and Jamont Wilson and Braxton Hicks for the North All-Stars in the nightcap. Clovis West’s D-I champion girls will provide four-year varsity player Landynn Munster and Anntranetta Stickman for the North.
The North boys also will feature four-year athletes and two of the greatest in Bullard and Roosevelt annals in Austin Armstead and Brian King. And the North All-Stars girls will include Desiree Harding, the key force in elevating Fresno High’s program in a four-year career.
