The top high school senior basketball players in the state are preparing for the Carolinas All-Star Classic against the best of North Carolina this weekend and our very own Phil Kornblut was in Myrtle Beach Friday night for the skills competition.
Brandon Stroman of Lower Richland won the boys’ three point shooting contest while Paris Kea of Greensboro won for the girls.
In the head to head matchup to decide the overall three point champ, Stroman nailed the two point ball on his last shot to win the title 12-11.
Demetre Rivers of Stratford, who has signed with Mercer, won the slam dunk competition.
The men’s team which features future Gamecock point guard Marcus Stroman of Keenan High School is being coached by former Lower Richland coach Willie Thomas.
Both Thomas and Stroman joined us on the show today.
