CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. — Terra Stapleton has another game against some quality talent.

After playing in the Division III state tournament last month at Ohio State University, the Fairland Lady Dragons’ 6-foot-4 senior center will play in the 23rd annual Russell Athletic Ohio-Kentucky All-Star Basketball Game Saturday at St. Thomas More College.

Stapleton is a two-time Associated Press Co-Player of the Year in Division III and has signed with Michigan.

Some of the top names will play in the game and participate in the 3-on-3 and one-on-one tournaments among the players on Friday.

Oak Hill’s LeAnna Adkins and Jackson’s Lydia Poe and Madison Ridout will join Stapleton as members of the Ohio roster.

Jenna Burdette — a Dayton recruit who helped lead Reedsville Eastern to the Division IV state title — is also on the Ohio squad.

Ohio State signee Alexa hart of Division III state champion Africentric and 6-6 Josey Buckingham of New Richmond are part of the 15-player Ohio roster.

Taylor Wheeler of Boyd County is a member of the Kentucky roster and Ashland’s Bill Bradley will be the head coach.
