DENVER | Several of Aurora’s top prep boys and girls basketball players take the floor Saturday for the annual Show all-star games.

Five city boys players and two girls players take part in the boys and girls Top 20 games, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. & 7 p.m. at Auraria Events Center. The event is presented by BioKats Sports.

In the girls game, Regis Jesuit’s Fran Belibi and Grandview’s Jaiden Galloway team up on the White Team — coached by Grandview’s Josh Ulitzky — while half of the White Team’s roster in the boys game is made up of locals: Smoky Hill’s Kenny Foster and Will Becker, Eaglecrest’s Colbey Ross, Cherokee Trail’s Jaizec Lottie and Grandview’s Gaige Prim.

All seven players — plus Grandview’s Michaela Onyenwere, who was selected but is unable to play — suited up for the A-Town All-Stars games March 18 at Cherokee Trail High School.

Galloway scored seven points and Belibi had four for Team East in the inaugural A-Town All-Star Girls Game, but Onyenwere and Team West rallied to win 77-72 in overtime.

Ross (13 points) and Becker (10) were among seven players in double figures for Team West in a 113-91 victory over Team East in the second annual A-Town All-Star Boys Game. Lottie poured in a game-high 27 points, while Prim had 18 and Foster added 14.

Rangeview’s Elijah Blake was also selected for The Show, but missed the entire season with a torn ACL.
