Three East Texans Compete in THSCA All-Star Basketball Game in Fort Worth
Three of East Texas' top boys basketball players competed in Monday night's Texas High School Coaches Association all-star game at TCU's Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
White Oak's Levi Yancy competed for the South squad, while Tatum's Javolick Garrett and Lufkin's Dominique Shaw played for a North, a 111-86 winner.
Shaw, a 6-foot-2 guard, had a big game off the bench, tallying 15 points and 10 rebounds in the North victory. Garrett, a 5-foot-10 guard, added six points and eight boards.
Yancy, a 6-foot-7 forward who signed with Tyler Junior College, recorded two points, four rebounds, and three assists.
Shaw averaged 17.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game en route to TABC all-region honors and the District 14-5A MVP award. The Tyler Junior College signee led the Panthers to the second round of the Class 5A Region II playoffs before ETSN.fm selected him to the Boys Basketball Super Team second team in April.
Yancy was named the Player of the Year on the ETSN.fm's Boys Basketball Super Team after leading White Oak to its second consecutive Class 2A state championship. Yancy averaged 12 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks per game and garnered Texas Association of Basketball Coaches 2A Player of the Year honors.
Garrett averaged 16.0 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 3.5 steals en route to second-team ETSN.fm Super Team honors. Garrett, who averaged 19.0 points per game during Tatum's postseason run to the 2A Region III championship game, was also tabbed to the TABC all-state team.
