County has 3 in Central IL All-Star Game
Sports Editor

Top senior basketball players from two area conferences will showcase their talents on the hardwood one more time Saturday at Cumberland High School.

The 20th Annual Boys Central Illinois All-Star Game, featuring senior players from teams in the Little Illini Conference against senior players from the National Trail Conference, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Waldrip Gym in Toledo.

Prior to the game, a three-point contest will be held at 7 p.m.

Crawford County will be represented by three players in the game, as Robinson's Aaron Siler and Derrick Nicholas and Oblong's Anthony Johnson will suit up for the LIC squad.

The local contingent will be joined by Newton's Dylan Davidson, Dylan Johnson and Keith Butler, Casey-Westfield's Trivette Scales and Matt McCown, Jonah Laws of Edwards County, Flora's Blake Shehorn, Marshall's Taylor Maurer, Walker Berner and Thomas Sisson and Cumberland's Trevor Brumleve.

The LIC team will be coached by Edwards County's Joel Brinkman and Flora's Phil Leib.

Making up the NTC squad will be Doug Krueger and Donovan Riley of Beecher City, Brownstown's Austin Hunter and Matt Sefton, Cowden-Herrick's Luke Moore, Dieterich's Dalton Hinterscher and Brandon Westjohn, Neoga's Michael Baker, Effingham St. Anthony's Jacob Schuette, Connor Beasley and Garrett Bartels of St. Elmo, Stewardson-Strasburg's Jason Becker and Justin Fulk and South Central's Rudy Hablewitz and Fisher Tharp.

Coaching the NTC team will be St. Elmo's Greg Feezel and South Central's Rick Simmons.

For the past several years, there has also been a girls' all-star game, but one will not be held this year due to lack of interest from teams in both conferences, according to tournament director and Cumberland boys' coach Justin Roedl. He added that due to recent lack of interest and the upcoming changes in both conferences, the future of the girls' game is also up in the air at this point.
