The team, which was released Tuesday, features three juniors on the first team as Davidson is joined by section runner-up West Mifflin's 6-1 Ryan Maha (18.3 ppg) and Steel Valley's 6-2 Ajan Smith.

Two seniors round out the first team with section champion Thomas Jefferson's 6-2 Joe Carroll (16.7 ppg) and East Allegheny's diminutive 5-4 Jordan Williams (17.5) making the list.

All five players are guards.

The second team includes Belle Vernon Area's Jason Capco and Ringgold's John Maldonado.

Capco, a 6-3 junior, averaged 15.8 ppg., while Maldonado, a 6-0 senior, averaged 15.4 ppg for the Rams.

Others named to the second tea, include East Allegheny 6-3 senior Joel Randolph (15.2 ppg) and juniors Dorian Broadwater of Steel Valley (6-0, 11 ppg) and Chase Winovich of TJ 96-4, 11.9 ppg).
