Our 2nd year featuring a boys Middle School All-Star Game kicked off the 2019 All NorCal Games. Featuring 20 players from Northern California we were excited to give this group of youngsters a platform to showcase the future of NorCal Basketball.
The Middle Schoolers battled it out with many lead changes throughout the game. After the Bay Area took a 4 point lead into the 2nd quarter, the Sac-Joaquin youngsters would jump out strong in the 2nd to take a 4 point lead of their own into halftime. After the break the Bay Area would blitz their Valley counterparts with a 32-13 3rd quarter! Not backing down the Sac-Joaquin would outscore the Bay Area by 11 in the 4th quarter, but it proved too late as they ran out of time to complete the comeback. In the end the Bay Area squad was victorious over Sac-Joaquin by a score of 88-82.
King-Jhsanni Wilhite, an eighth-grader from Aptos Middle School in San Francisco, earned his 2nd consecutive Player of the Game honor after a game-high 27 point and 14 rebound performance.
Kodey Weary earned Defensive Player of the Game with an impressive double-double of his own. The 6'4" eighth-grader from Sierra added 16 rebounds and 17 points for Sac-Joaquin.
The Bay Area had three other players in double figures with Ahmaree McCullough (18), Quentin Kennedy (12) and Marcus Washington Jr. (11).
Sac-Joaquin was lead by Darius Smith Jr. of Modesto Christian with 20 points on an efficient 10-16 shooting. Bryant Davis also was a major contributor adding 10 points.
In its first two years, this game has an average margin of victory of only 6.5 points!
