Classic logoTribune/Star-News All-Star Classic
When:
Friday, Damien High School
Time: Girls game, 5:30 p.m.; boys 7:30
Series record: Tribune boys lead 6-5; Star-News girls lead 6-5.
Last year: Tribune boys won 89-81; Tribune girls won 85-60.

STAR-NEWS’ MOSLEY WITH SOMETHING TO PROVE: It’s possible that the most dangerous player in Friday’s Tribune/Star-News All-Star Classic will also be the smallest.
Renaissance Academy point guard Marquise Mosley has far exceeded whatever limitations his height put on him. And on Friday night, Mosley likely holds the key as to whether the Star-News team can beat the Tribune.
The 12th annual Classic at Damien High School begins with the girls game at 5:30 p.m., followed by the boys at 7:30.
“He’s a great basketball player,” Star-News head coach Tim Tucker of Maranatha said. “He’s deceptive, has speed and his IQ for the game is incredible. After practice the other day, I told him he’s got to be a little more aggressive with what he does because he’s going to be a big key to us having a chance to win this game.”

TRIBUNE GIRLS COACH TIFFANY LIANG WANTS HER TEAM TO SHOOT: After holding the first practice for the Tribune girls all-star team, coach Tiffany Liang of South Hills came away thinking one of her team’s biggest strengths could be its biggest weakness.
Loaded with guards, the Tribune team saw many of its best players declining to shoot during its scrimmage in favor of passing the ball to teammates. Liang wants the opposite to happen on Friday.
“Our girls are kinda too nice, they don’t want to shoot the ball,” Liang said. “They’re very unselfish players. I think one of our coaches told them ‘We want to shoot the ball before we turn it over.’”
The Tribune roster is very guard heavy. Post players are a bit thin, which may prove costly against the taller Star-News.
When asked if any players stood out in the opening practice, Liang was quick to point to Rowland guard Emily Mesa, who helped the Raiders win 16 games this winter.
