Four starters from Jesuit's Class 5A state title team lead a sparkling contingent of Hillsborough County seniors set to compete in Saturday's annual Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game.

The event, to be held at Tampa Prep, tips off at 7 p.m. A dunk and 3-point shooting contest will be held at halftime. Admission is $5.

Collectively, the game will feature six final four participants -- four from Jesuit and two from 8A semifinalist Wharton. Among the conspicuous non-participants -- for now -- are Tampa Prep PG Josh Heath and county scoring leader Reggie Hart. A USF signee and son of Bulls coach Stan Heath, Josh Heath is attending the Bulls' game Saturday at Cincinnati.

Hart, meantime, was set to compete in another state-wide all-star game, but might be a late addition to the TBBCA contest, Chiefs coach Christopher Snyder said. Hart also plans to compete in the Hillsborough-Pinellas all-star game at Eckerd College on March 22.

Seniors may compete in only two all-star contests.

Here are Saturday's rosters:

Armwood -- Marcus Hill, Vontrey Hill; Durant -- Trent Robertson, Kyle White; Strawberry Crest -- Devin Diggs; Tampa Bay Tech -- Ryan Cummings; Tampa Prep -- Adonis Rwabigwi; Wharton -- C.J. McGill, Sir Patrick Reynolds
Coaches: Adrian Johnson, Tampa Bay Tech; Andre Lewis, Strawberry Crest

Alonso -- Malachi Christopher, Greg Robinson; Chamberlain -- Ja'Marcus Russ; Jesuit -- Jack Fleming, Joey Galvis, Devin Harris, Travis Johnson; Robinson -- Justin Madison; Sickles -- Dan Harris, Malcolm Johnson
Coaches: Renaldo Garcia, Sickles; Todd Price, Alonso
