Morgan Academy quartet to play in AISA All-Star Game

Four Morgan Academy players will participate in the two AISA All-Star Basketball Games.

Jeremy Lee, Milam Turner, Averee Adams and Kalee Jones will play in the AISA All-Star games at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Cramton Bowl Multiplex in Montgomery.

Lee and Turner will play for the West All-Stars. Adams and Jones will play for the West All-Star girls’ squad.

Morgan Academy coach Luke Hutcheson said he’s honored to have Turner and Lee close their basketball careers in the All-Star game.

“I’m very proud to have Milam and Jeremy representing our school in the all-star game,” Hutcheson said. “It’s very difficult to make the all-star team in basketball because of the limited amount of roster spots on the team, so it’s great to have two players make it.

“Milam and Jeremy both had great senior years and carried our team to a lot of wins this year. It will be fun to watch these guys represent our school and show out against the best players in the state.”

Lady Senators coach Lebo Jones is equally proud of Adams and Jones making the all-star roster.

“They both have been playing basketball for a long time and they deserved to make the team,” Jones said. “Both are good basketball players but even finer young ladies. I’m so proud of both of them and I know they will represent Morgan Academy well.”
