DENVER | After some uncertainty, the annual Show all-star girl basketball game continues this season — though minus its affiliation with the Denver Nuggets — and a pair of Aurora prep players are set to participate.

Gateway senior Carmen Ramey and Regis Jesuit senior TaeKenya Cleveland each were on the White Team roster that was released Monday for the Show game, which is scheduled to be played at 6 p.m. April 29 at Colorado Christian University.

Cleveland — who has signed with American University — was an All-Continental League first team selection who averaged 10.4 points per game for the Raiders, despite missing a handful of games when she was the victim of a serious car accident.

Ramey, who averaged 13.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game for a 10-14 Gateway team, also played in the EMAC All-Star Game.

Grandview junior Michaela Onyenwere — the Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year for the 2015-16 season — was selected as well, but is unable to play. Onyenwere played in the Show the past two seasons when it was the Pepsi Center, winning the Most Valuable Player award from the game when she was a freshman in 2014.

As usual, rosters for the game were voted on by media members, including several who were part of the panel used in previous years by the Nuggets.

The game was acquired this year by Biokats Sports Network and is set to be carried live online by StreamItSports, which broadcast the inaugural A-Town All-Stars boys basketball game in March. Full replay, here.
