Burnaby's Roberts shines in all-star game
The passing ability of point guard Alisha Roberts of Burnaby provided a spark for the victorious team in the annual B.C. high school girls basketball all-star game played at UBC last Saturday.
Roberts’ passing, particularly to game MVP Tyger Holt of Victoria, and nine points played a large role in leading a team coached by Rob Sollero of Coquitlam’s Centennial Centaurs to an 81-62 victory over a team coached by New Westminster Hyacks’ Doug Woodward.
Ariana Sider of the Hyacks led Woodward’s team in scoring with nine points. She will be attending Simon Fraser University next season while Roberts, who played in Vancouver for the York House Tigers, is off to Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
In the boys game, Denzel Laguerta of Burnaby’s St. Thomas More Collegiate Knights scored six points for the winning team coached by Steven Hanson of Terry Fox in Port Coquitlam which defeated one with Danny Jakobs of Mission as bench boss 95-85.
