Senior Robbi Allen, who recently signed to play basketball for Savannah State University, will represent Nash Central this upcoming Monday in the annual East-West All-Star Game.

On the boys side, Rocky Mount Prep’s Kalil Baker was a late selection, but will play for the East’s team as well. He said he found out on Thursday when the coach of his side contacted him.

The game will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum, with the girls’ game at 6:30 p.m. and the boys’ at 8 p.m.

Allen, who returned this season from a second ACL tear her junior year, came back to average 19 points per game for the Bulldogs, who reached the second round of the 2-A state tournament.

Baker, who committed to play for Davidson County Community College this past May, averaged a 1-A-high 26.8 points per game this past season, leading his Jaguars to the state’s semi-final game.
