Alabama signees Alex Reese of Pelham and Herb Jones of Hale County are part of Alabama’s roster for the 27th Alabama-Mississippi All-Star games.
The girls-boys doubleheader will be played March 17 at the Dunn-Oliver Acadome on the campus of Alabama State in Montgomery. The girls tip at 5 p.m., followed by the boys at 7.
The Alabama girls roster includes Alexus Dye and Jayla Morrow from four-time defending Class 5A state champion Wenonah. Dragons coach Emanuel Bell, who is battling lung cancer, will lead the all-stars. The girls roster also includes Auburn signee Unique Thompson of Faith Academy, and South Carolina signees Bianca Jackson (Brewbaker Tech) and Haley Troup (Gadsden City) and Tennessee Chatanooga signee Brooke Burns (Gadsden City).
Mississippi hosted last year’s doubleheader and won both games. The Magnolia State’s boys won 85-83 to cut Alabama’s lead in the series to 14-12. Mississippi’s girls evened its series with Alabama at 13-13 with a 78-77 victory.
Both games will be live-streamed over the NFHS Network and will be broadcast over the AHSAA Radio Network.
