Invited to play for the north Island’s A boys’ team are Dylan Dorsey and Tyler Radelja of Wellington and Wes Richardson from Dover Bay.

Those named to the north Island’s B boys’ team include Taylor Davies of Dover and Malcolm Rush from Wellington.

Vancouver Island University men’s basketball coaches Matt Kuzminski and Avneet Brar will coach the north Island teams at the seniors classic.

The all-star games will be held April 5 at Spectrum Secondary School. The boys’ B game goes at 4:30 p.m., followed by the girls’ game at 6:15 p.m. and the boys’ A game at 8 p.m.
