While the weather forecast calls for clouds and possible showers Sunday afternoon, a pair of local high school basketball players will be seeing stars, and lots of them, inside the Langley Events Centre.
Thatâ€™s not to say Walnut Grove Gator Jadon Cohee and Brookswood Bobcat Jesse Brown arenâ€™t shining stars, themselves.
Cohee, who led the Gators to the B.C. senior boys Triple A title in 2013 as a Grade 11, is headed to Seattle University on a hoops scholarship this fall.
Brown, a senior shooting guard who will play for the hometown Trinity Western University Spartans next season, was a key reason why the Bobcats captured the provincial Triple A championship at the LEC last month.
Both will be in action when the LEC hosts the annual BC Boys and Girls High School Basketball All-Star Games.
The games will take place on the LEC Centre Court April 20.
The girlsâ€™ game, which includes Brown, gets going at 3 p.m. followed by the boysâ€™ contest, with Cohee among the players in the spotlight, at 5 p.m.
The games will feature the top Grade 12 boys and girls players in the province, as players will take to the floor as high school basketball players for the final time.
Teams were confirmed earlier this week by their respective associations.
The girlsâ€™ team will be a coaching rematch from the 2014 BC Secondary School Girls AA Basketball Championship game as winning coach Peter Sprogis from the Windsor Dukes will lead one squad while runner up Anthony Beyrouti from St. Thomas Aquinas will lead the other. Here are their respective rosters:
Maddy Baker York House
Domunique Booker St. Thomas More
