Dynamic scorers lead West All Star team

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - In preparation for the Azalea Orthopedics All-Star high school basketball game on Saturday, the West boys team held their practice on Monday night at Tyler Junior College.

The West team, coached by Grapeland's Owen Clifton will take on the East squad which will be coached by Brett Carr. Clifton, though, may have the upper hand right off the bat with Patrick Walker and Anthony Sanders on his roster.

Walker who is from Grapeland along with Sanders from Athens combined to average nearly 50 points per game this season. Both are dynamic scorers who just happen to be headed to college next year together.

Entering Monday's practice, the two had no idea both of them had committed to Navarro Junior College, but it didn't take long for the all-stars to begin thinking about how fun it will be to play together at the next level.

Walker who lead Grapeland to the state semifinals averaged nearly 20 points per game, while Sanders poured in nearly 30 a contest.

"My coach had been talking to me about him, and also the coach from Navarro so I've been hearing about him a lot," Sanders said. "I'm just ready to see what he has. When we get out on this court, we can see what we can make happen for next year."

Walker added,"I just found out we are headed to the same college. He is a great scorer. We can open up and make plays for other people. I think we will be real good and we will catch of glimpse to see what it will be like to be on the same team."
