GAME OF THE WEEK: Inland Sports All-Star Classic

Team Tarkanian vs. Team Masi
Inland Sports All-Star Classic
At Citrus Hill HS, Perris (Calif.)
Tipoff: 7 p.m. PT on Friday, April 7

TEAM TARKANIAN will be led by the Corona Centennial duo of 6-foot-1 guard Isom Butler and 6-8 forward Jalen Hill. Isom is undecided while Hill, the Team USA Youth National player, is signed with UCLA. Woodcrest Christian’s 6-4 shooting guard Alex Wright (committed to CBU) should see plenty of time matching up against the opposition’s top guards.

TEAM MASI got Eastvale Roosevelt’s 6-4 guard Jamari Baker and 6-6 forward Matt Mitchell — CIF champions — so everything else is mathematical, right? Baker, a silky combo guard, decommitted from Cal and is currently undecided. Mitchell is locked in at Cal State Fullerton. REV’s 6-6 forward Kim Aiken (Eastern Washington) will be one to watch on a team deep with bigs.

Team Tarkanian – G Alex Wright, Woodcrest Christian; G Damien Reedy, MoVal Rancho Verde; F Ajani Kennedy, MoVal Rancho Verde; G Isom Butler, Corona Centennial; F Jalen Hill, Corona Centennial; F Jordan Robinson, Riverside King; F Jordan Jones, San Bernardino Pacific; F Anthony Evans, San Bernardino Pacific; G Angel Gonzalez, Riverside Norte Vista; G Jaron Owens, Perris Citrus Jill; G Michael Carongong, Vista Murrieta.

Team Masi – G Jordan Williams, Hemet Tahquitz; F Azmar Sabb, Hemet Tahquitz; G Jemari Baker, Eastvale Roosevelt; F Matt Mitchell, Eastvale Roosevelt; F Kim Aiken, Redlands East Valley; F Cameron Nunley, Riverside North; F Anthony Tefteller, Riverside La Sierra; G Cesar Meza, Norco; G Daniel Soto, Fontana Jurupa Hills; G D.J. Molett, Riverside Hillcrest; F Damian Givens, Jurupa Valley.

It’s interesting that the Corona Centennial-Eastvale Roosevelt rivalry from this season will carry over into this game. Can Huskies Butler and Hill get some revenge?
