Three Local Players To Represent State In Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Game

MADISON- Three local high school basketball players will spend the next few days in preparation to represent Alabama as each have been chosen to play in the 34th annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Game set to be played in Mississippi during March.

From Bob Jones, Alana Obianozie and Janiyah Bone will join Sparkman’s Abethany James among the 12-player roster consisting of seniors selected by coaches’ nominations by the Alabama High School Athletic Directors and Coaches Association.

“I’m very excited for Alana and Janiyah to be able to compete in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game as I think both will definitely bring a competitive edge to the game playing hard on both sides of the court,” Jazmine Carr head coach of the Bob Jones Patriots. “Each had great high school careers here at Bob Jones and led our team in many areas this year.”

Bob Jones (29-4), ranked No. 1 for several weeks during the regular season just missed making it to the Final Four in Birmingham losing in the Regional Final to Hoover 58-53.

Obianozie (G, 5-9, Sr.) posted 9-points, 4-rebounds and 2-steals per game during the just completed season while Bone averaged 9-points and 3-rebounds per outing.

For Sparkman (21-8), which lost to Chelsea 40-28 in the semi-finals of the Northeast Regional, James will represent the Lady Senators in the annual All-Star Game. She was a two-year starter and came back from ACL surgery in her junior season to help the Senators in their fight in the post-season playoffs.
