Seven Observer-area players to play in Carolinas All-Star prep classic March 22 in Myrtle Beach

Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic Announces 2014 Teams/Players

Myrtle Beach, SC- Forty of the top North and South Carolina high school seniors have been chosen to represent their school and state in the 17th Annual Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic to be played Friday, March 21 through Saturday, March 22 in Myrtle Beach.


Area players selected to the boys team include Concord's Connor Burchfield, Shelby's Gabe DeVoe, Marvin Ridge's John Emezie and Olympic's C.J. Jackson.

Area girls players selected include Albemarle's Akela Branch, East Rutherford's Rachel Camp and Bandy's Ace Easter.

 “It is exciting to welcome the Classic again this year,” said Executive Director, John Rhodes.  It’s really an honor for Myrtle Beach and for these talented young men and women. The players are selected from teams across the Carolinas and represent some of the nation’s most talented athletes. They work extremely hard in the classroom and on the court to earn the opportunity to participate in this incredible tournament,” he continued.

While the players are initially nominated by their coaches, it is the North and South Carolina Coaches’ Associations that make the final selections. The in-depth nomination process, which takes into consideration both the player’s academic and athletic ability, adds to the prestige of the event. 

“This year’s All Star Basketball Classic promises to be one of the best to date,” Rhodes said. In 2013, South Carolina won the boy’s tournament for South Carolina’s fourth consecutive title while the North Carolina women upset two-time reining champion, South Carolina, in exciting overtime play.

The two-day event attracts approximately 5,000 fans from throughout both Carolinas.

Tickets for the 17th Annual Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic are available at Myrtle Beach High School and may be purchased in advance or ‘day of’. For more information, visit www.carolinaallstarclassic.com or call 843-231-7798.
