Signing Day has passed, but several pretty good local high school basketball players are still looking for the right school.
Some have choices, others don’t, but exposure is the idea behind the World of Sports Private vs. Public Senior All-Star Basketball Games will be held Saturday at the renovated Tri-Cities gym.
Top boys players include first-team all-state forward Naquavious King of South Atlanta and Region 6-AAA player of the year Solomon Mangham of Woodward Academy.
The top girls players are Miller Grove’s Tashi Thompson, Woodland’s Lindsey Reed, Luella’s Carrington Johnson and Hughes’ Briunca Caldwell, all first-team all-region selections.
‘’Atlanta has a lot of unseen talent, especially the girls,’’ game founder Joshauwa Brown said. ‘’Some kids need that extra platform to get noticed to get an athletic scholarship.’’
The coaches will be Darron Rogers (boys) and Hilda Hankerson (girls) of Westlake, David Jones of Greenforest Christian (boys) and Jackie Cowan of Southwest Atlanta Christian,.
The girls’ game starts at 3:30 p.m., the boys’ game at 5:30.
