DENVER | None of them are finished yet with the 2013-14 girls basketball season, but five Aurora players have at least one more game waiting for them.
Top seeds Regis Jesuit and Grandview make up half of the Class 5A Final Four set to be contested March 13 at the Coors Events Center in Boulder and a combined five players from the elite city teams were selected to the annual Show all-star game sponsored by the Denver Nuggets.
At a press conference Monday afternoon at the Pepsi Center, the Regis Jesuit trio of seniors Diani Akigbogun, Justine Hall and Anna Ptasinski and the Grandview duo of senior Katie Cunningham and freshman Michaela Onyenwere were introduced as part of the top 20 players from around Colorado — regardless of classification — as selected by a panel of sportswriters and sportcasters from around the state.
The girls Show all-star game is schedule for 1:30 p.m. April 12 at the Pepsi Center.
It will be the second straight appearance in the Show for Hall and Akigbogun, who won the Most Valuable Player award in last season’s game.
