NEW ALBANY New Albany senior Chyna Anthony led all scorers with 22 points in Tuesday’s Indiana Junior Senior All Star Game at New Albany’s Doghouse.
Anthony, who will play basketball at Division I Northern Kentucky beginning next winter, made 9 of 13 shots from the floor,
adding four free throws, nine rebounds, a block and a steal in the Seniors’ 112 76 win over the Junior Stars.
Anthony controlled the opening tipoff and was in control for most of her 17 minutes on the court. She scored six of the first eight points for the Senior squad and knocked down her last four shots before the half,
tallying 18 of her game high 22 in the first half.
“It’s a very elite group of girls,” Anthony said after the game. “It’s been surreal, the whole experience.”
Anthony will compete with the seniors against the juniors again Thursday in Logansport. The All Star team will then face the Kentucky All Stars on Saturday and Sunday. Indiana hosts Kentucky on Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and goes to Frankfort on Sunday.
Sean East a junior guard for New Albany had only one basket in Tuesday night’s Indiana Junior Senior All Star game,
but it came in a big moment in his team’s 122 110 upset of the Senior team.
With his Junior Stars up 98 96 over their senior counterparts, East stole the ball and drove to the hoop for a layup. The Juniors never relinquished the lead again.
East, who was a key contributor to New Albany’s 2016 state championship and back to back sectional championships,
finished the night 1 for 2 from the floor. He added two assists and three steals in 13 minutes of playing time.
“It’s a major honor,” East said of his All Star selection. “I just tried to go out there, have fun and soak it all in.”
It’s the only time this summer East will participate on the Junior team.
Junior All American Romeo Langford was a member of the Junior team but he missed the game due to a prior commitment. Langford is participating in the Adidas Path in Europe this summer.
Langford and East will headline a Bulldog team that should contend for another state championship in 2017 18.
