Prep All Stars
By Aaron Mendonca, Staff Writer

POMONA -- The best senior basketball players the area has to offer will be on display in the this year's Inland Valley All-Star High School Basketball Games.

The games, which will take place March 30 in Cal Poly Pomona's Kellogg Gym, will feature the 24 best senior boys and girls playing in a North vs. South matchup.

The games, the 28th annual for the boys and 14th for the girls, is co-sponsored by the Daily Bulletin, La Verne Rotary Club and Cal Poly Pomona.

"It is a pleasure to be able to bring these games to the public for all these years," said Daily Bulletin publisher Bob Balzer.  

This year's teams are stacked with outstanding talent, according to game director Louis Brewster, Daily Bulletin senior sports editor.

"Selecting the four teams is probably the most difficult task I have during the year," said Brewster. "We are fortunate that we have so many seniors who not only are standouts on the court, but also in the classroom and community."

Anchored by Eisenhower teammates Cory McJimson and Johnny Dukes, the North team, coached by A.B. Miller's John Romagnoli, has impressive size inside.

Add in the athleticism of Shaddean Aaron (Claremont) and Jacob Johnson (Etiwanda) and the outside shooting of Jacob Ramirez (A.B. Miller) and Terrence Hundley (Alta Loma) and the North squad will be a tough foe.

Not to be outdone, the South features a strong inside group as well, led by Pomona's rebounding machine, Odell Howard, and high-flying forward Michael Efevberha from Ganesha. 

Bolstering the South is two sets of teammates, Ayala guards Danny Stephens and Kyle Gregory and guard Curtis Small and center Antouan Mesropian from San Dimas.

Rounding out the South will be Phil Smith (Kaiser), Greg Morita (Diamond Bar), Quincy Fields (Montclair), Richard Snyder (Don Lugo), Dellano Bell (Garey) and John Flanagan (Boys Republic).

Also on the North team is Getano Johnson (Rialto), Justin Miller (Bonita), Justian Hamilton (Rancho Cucamonga), Zach Phillips (Damien), Eric Holland (Upland) and Victor Michel (A.B. Miller).

On the girls side the South team, coached by Diamond Ranch's Ed Taylor, will feature a group of foes-turned-teammates as Ayala's Kia Riley and Brittany Sieger will team up with Sierra League rival Kim Nakamura (Diamond Bar) to try and down the North team.

They will also get plenty of help from San Dimas center Susan Grundy and Chino forward Socorro Reynoso. 

The North team won't be without its own source of firepower. 

Eisenhower standout forward Ajailee Lauder, Stefanie Foster of Bonita and Danielle Saulsberry of A.B. Miller will lead the team coached by Rancho Cucamonga's Ellen Jackman.

Also on Jackman's squad is Reva Evero (Alta Loma), Janae Esteves (Etiwanda), Kristen Dowling (Upland), Emily Starr (Claremont), Crystal Abrego (Chaffey), LaTonya Worshams (Garey), Nashire Clark (Rialto) and Rancho Cucamonga teammates Gloria Fonua and Jemika Dixon.

The South team will also include Jackie Wright (Kaiser), Courtney Richardson (Montclair), Cassie Pitts (Don Lugo), Shannon Fuller (Ontario Christian), Melody Lockhart (Ganesha), Stephanie Edwards (Diamond Ranch) and Dana Knott (Diamond Ranch).
