  • All-star basketball games set for Saturday night in Greenville

      Last year Greenville senior Dartannon Wilson took advantage of the home court with 34 points to lead all scorers at the first annual Chicken Express all-star basketball game.
      Wilson helped the North to a 114-85 victory over the South in a fast-paced boys game. Wilson, who was 15-of-20 from the field including a couple of dunks, also pulled down 12 rebounds and handed out four assists to secure most valuable player honors.

      The second annual event is set for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night at Greenville High School. The girls game tips off first, with the boys event to follow.
