A Gathering of Basketball All-Stars

A Gathering of Basketball All-Stars
The top eight graders and senior basketball players will gather together for one last time in their careers for two all-star games on Sunday at Rutgers Camden.
At 1 p.m. is the Tim Lenahan Memorial grammar school game, followed at 3 by the Albert J. Carino Boys’ Basketball Club of South Jersey senior all-star games.
Many of the players who appear in the eighth grade game eventually return to compete as high school seniors to the all-star event.
What is great about this event is that there are some players who still have not made a college choice and there are usually several college coaches in attendance. One of those players is 6-7 senior Dan Fleming of Haddonfield, who was the leading scorer for the Group 2 state champions, averaging 16.3 points.
Proceeds benefit the Lions Club of South Jersey, a great cause in a game that serves as a celebration for another great season in South Jersey basketball.
