Some of the best players in the York-Adams League will be on the court this weekend during an annual senior all-star basketball showcase at Harrisburg Christian.
In all, more than a dozen Y-A players were selected for the eight-game event sponsored by pahoops.org. That includes four of the six Y-A League players of the year from the 2018-19 season.
There are three games scheduled for Friday and five on Saturday.
The premier contests are Saturday night when top Pennsylvania players take on Maryland all-stars in both boys' and girls' action.
The Y-A League has two players in the girls' game and three players in the boys' game.
In the Pennsylvania-Maryland girls' game at 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Bradi Zumbrum and Dee McCormick of PIAA Class 3-A state champion Delone Catholic are set to compete. The 6-foot Zumbrum was the Y-A Division III Player of the Year this past season, averaging 11.7 points per game. Her Squirettes won the D-III championship without suffering a division loss.
In the boys' game at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, York High's Clovis Gallon Jr., Littlestown's Logan Collins and West York's Alex McClellan are on the Pennsylvania roster. Gallon was the Y-A D-I Player of the Year this season, while Collins won the same award in D-III. They each helped their teams win division crowns, while Gallon also led the Bearcats to the Y-A playoff crown. Gallon averaged 18.3 ppg this season, while Collins was second in the league at 22.0 ppg. McClellan was a first-team D-II all-star who averaged 17.3 ppg.
