Grebb, Uniontown all-stars to face off
Some of the best high school basketball players in the tri-county area will be on display this evening at Uniontown's Bailey Park as the all-stars of the Uniontown Summer Basketball League will host the all-stars from the J. Budd Grebb Summer Memorial Basketball League.
“This is something we'd like to do every year,” Naz Victoria, assistant coach of the Grebb League All-Stars said. “Next year, we'll look to have the game down at Mechanic Street.”
The game will begin at 7 p.m. with Bob Kennedy, coach of Grebb League champion BeeGraphix, coaching the Grebb League stars.
The team will be led by League MVP Elijah Minnie. The 6-8 Lincoln Park forward dominated the Grebb League and ripped down 28 rebounds in the league's championship game.
Minnie and Kiski Prep's Noah Brown were unanimous selections to the team.
Dayshore Majors (Ringgold) and Charlie Scharbo (Thomas Jefferson) as well as Brownsville's Cole Novotney made up the all-league first team.
Monessen duo Luke Doptis and Clintell Gillaspie will also play in the game. They were second-team selections to the all-Grebb League Team.
A talented pair of Elizabeth Forward Warriors will miss the all-star game due to prior commitments for football. They are Matt Bernadowski and Jalen French. Fellow Warrior George Prota, also named to the team, is on vacation.
California Area freshman Kass Taylor will round out the team that will head to Bailey Park, although Victoria said an alternate may be named to the team.
