Shavar Newkirk has panned out to be the top floor general in the Big Apple. The last two seasons he has quarterbacked Team Scan to several tournament titles up and down the East Coast. He took home All Tournament team honors at the Basketball Spotlight Grand Finale and will be a finalist for 14U Player of the Year. Shavar's progress and point guard play this season has earned him an invite to play in the J.E.M. All Star Classic. This event will take place August 28th at St. Benedicts Preparatory School.
The J.E.M. All Star Classic will bring together the top rising 9th Graders in the region for a day of competition and celebration.
