Roman Catholics Rashann London sprang up as he posed for a photo with Chris Evans, Shep Garner, and Floyd Preito. He handed his iPhone to the photographer.
One more, London said, making sure he got a photo for himself after playing with and against friends Sunday in the All-Star Labor Classic.
The City All-Stars beat the Suburban team, 150-130, in the boys game and the Suburban girls beat the City All-Stars, 67-51, at Northeast High. But the games gave the participating seniors an opportunity to do more than just showcase their skills.
Its good to get to go at certain guys because we dont get to play each other in our leagues, said London, who finished with 19 points. Its refreshing. Its a lot different just to come out here and have fun with a lot of my friends.
One of Londons best friends is Constitutions Preito. The two played in the Positive Image league in West Oak Lane when they were 11 and remained friends. They plan to play on the same AAU team this summer.
Hes always at my house and Im always at his house, London said. We always work out together. . . . Its good to get back on the court with him.
Weve always been close off the court, said Preito, who scored 18 points.
Two of the areas best girls players share a similar relationship. Mount St. Josephs Alex Louin drove to the basket and bounced a pass through her legs to Shipleys Sox Alexander, who trailed her. Alexander couldnt finish the layup, but the two went on to help the Suburban girls jump out to a 17-0 lead and the win.
Alexander and Louin have played AAU basketball together for the Philadelphia Belles when since they were in seventh grade.
That was my favorite part of the game, said Louin, a Villanova recruit who scored 12 points. Its always nice playing with her because were used to each others games.
Its a test for next year, said Alexander, a St. Johns recruit who scored eight points. Im excited to get up there and do my thing.
Bishop McDevitts Tyrell Long led the City team with 24 points. Mikal Bridges (Great Valley), Jordan Greene (Abington Friends), Mahir Johnson (Chester), and Amadou Kaba (Penn Wood) each scored 15 points to lead the Suburban team in the boys game.
Stephanie Brown led the city team with 12 points in the girls game.
