Selma High’s Lady Saints will continue a honorable tradition Thursday night when Keisha Moore plays in the Alabama All-Star Basketball Game in Huntsville.

Moore, who will be a senior this season, is the fifth consecutive Lady Saint to participate in the annual event.

“That’s a great honor, especially for Selma High,” said Anthony Harris, girls head basketball coach. “It allows the girls to get some exposure before deciding on a college.”

Previous Selma selections for the annual contest have been Santana Seay, who played at Troy and Concordia and is now on the Montgomery Dream semi-pro basketball team; Erica Lumpkin, who played at Alabama State; and Ashley Grimes and Kamesha Strong, who both signed with Auburn Montgomery this year.

Moore said she was interested in the 6 p.m. game Thursday. She hasn’t decided on a college yet.

“I’m still confused on where I want to go,” she said. “I plan to study criminal justice.”

Moore said most of the time at the All-Star Game preliminaries will be spent practicing.

“The schedule did say something about bowling and pictures, but that was about it,” she said.

Moore was named the co-Leading Scorer award winner this year with Grimes at the annual Selma High awards banquet.
