Staves set for N.C. All-Star game


Incoming Campbell women’s basketball freshman Brittany Staves will compete in the North Carolina Coaches Association (NCCA) East-West All-Star game on Monday at 6:30 p.m. inside the Greensboro Coliseum.

Staves, who recently closed out her high school campaign at Leesville Road High School, averaged 20.8 points per game during her senior season.

The Raleigh native helped lead the Pride to a 22-5 overall record including an 11-1 mark in CAP-7 league play under head coach Don Proehl.

The 6-foot small forward is a three-time all-conference honoree, including being named the CAP-7 Player of the Year as a senior. She also achieved all-district honors as a sophomore and junior and was tabbed the District 5 Player of the Year during her senior season.

The East-West All-Star Games have lived up to their billing of seeing tomorrow’s stars today, as many former all-star players wear NCAA National Championship rings, Super Bowl rings, NBA Championship rings, or have participated in soccer’s World Cup.

The first women’s East-West All-Star Game was in 1975.

The Greensboro Coliseum opened in 1960. It has been the site for the 1974 NCAA finals, many ACC Men’s and Women’s Tournaments and NCAA Regional games.
