After leading their respective teams to the state championship games this month, Tampa Prep senior forward Jay Bowie and Sickles senior guard Jordan Davis have been selected to play in this year’s FACA North-South All-Star Game.
Clearwater senior guard Cory Carden has also been invited to play in the game.
All will play on the South roster.
The game, regarded as the state’s top all-star showcase, will be played March 20 at Embry-Riddle University in Daytona Beach at 2 p.m.
The 6-foot-5 Bowie averaged a double-double this season, leading the team with 15.9 points and 10.0 rebounds a game, helping the Terps to the Class 2A final.
Davis, a 5-foot-10 point guard, averaged 15.0 points and a team-high 7.5 assists to go with 5.9 rebounds.
Sickles coach Renaldo Garcia said Davis will be able to play in the game after injuring his arm during a fall in the Gryphons’ Class 5A title game Thursday. His arm is currently in a sling, so he won’t be playing in Thursday’s Hillsborough County East-West Game, but Garcia said the extra week of healing should allow him to play in the FACA game.
Carden, a 5-foot-8 guard, helped lead the Tornadoes to the Class 5A region final, where they lost to Sickles.
