WILMINGTON, NC—February 6, 2018: The North Carolina Coaches Association and the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association have announced the team rosters for the 2018 Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games, sponsored by House of Raeford Farms FLOCK, the non-profit arm of House of Raeford Farms.

On March 24th, the top 20 high school boys and girls from North Carolina will face off against the top 20 players in South Carolina during the Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games at John T. Hoggard High School in Wilmington.

“These athletes represent the best our states have to offer the sport of basketball and we’re honored they have chosen to come to Wilmington for three days to not only play in their respective games, but to give back to the community,” said Shell Dula and Phil Weaver, executive directors of the South Carolina and North Carolina Coaches’ Associations, respectively.

When the students are not practicing or playing, they will be participating in community service events, including visiting the children’s hospital at New Hanover Regional Medical Center and two New Hanover County elementary schools, in addition to hosting basketball clinics at the Brigade Boys & Girls Club and the Community Boys & Girls Club.

    I think it’s getting hysterical how these coaches keep leaving Jaylen Alston off of these All Star Rosters!! No disrespect to any chosen but I think this kid is the best in Guilford County. They for some reason do not give him his respect until they have to play him and stop him.

  • Rachel Young said,

    I’m wondering how a young man who is in the top 20 in the State for scoring and double doubles again not on the All-star team. Jaylen Alston keep working hard your not the one we’re wondering about….

  • wildcat basketball said,

    I do know that Jaylen Alston was nominated and he put 32 on Revis’ team. I’m with Drob on this one.

  • drob1211 said,

    @wildcat basketball I guess that Reavis must still have hard feelings toward the kid then for that. All of these All Star teams miss every time. It is a shame though that the young man gets this treatment every time. Sad part is he is a super kid outside the game as well. I hope it is not political like that but hard not to see it that way

  • Christopher Michael said,

    This is crazy, I wonder if the coach or any committee member would give an explanation/statement. All State as a junior, N&R POY as a junior and his stats are up and team ranked in the top 5 in the state…sucks that kids suffer from adult politics. Kid stays in public school works hard and puts up numbers and this is the reward. Sickening.

  • drob1211 said,

    @Christopher Michael I totally agree with you on that. This young man has done nothing but PRODUCE. Numbers are their and he is leading his team right now to an undefeated in conference and ranked in top 3 in the state. Let alone led them to the State Championship game last year. He is too good not to be chosen.

  • Dukebluedevil said,

    He probably does not fit what the coach wants. Mighty funny the kid from Northern, whose stats are not as good, made the team. Reavis is a Northwest guy. Certain types of players he may gravitate towards.

  • propasser said,

    Who picks the teams? @Michael…What is this adult politics you are referring to ?

  • Christopher Michael said,

    @propasser The politics hat allow coaches or whomever (adults) it’s not voted on by players to pick a team leave and leave an all state (n&r poy) off. Team is 20-1, ranked in the top 3 in the state. I’m sure all the young men selected have earned. But so has Alston. If he were at a city school, or one of the big Guilford county privates we wouldn’t even be having his conversation. Thats what I mean by politics. I think 25ppg and 12rbg gets you selected.
