North Rallies For Victory In The 2023 Senior All-Star Game
Led by the long range shooting of Holmdel's Alexandra Loucopoulos the North All-Stars rallied from a halftime deficit to beat the South 104-72 in the Shore Girls Basketball Coaches Association Senior All-Star game at Red Bank Catholic Thursday night. Loucopoulos finished with a game-high 19 points, doing most of her damage from behind the 3-point line in the second half and was named North MVP. Emma Carmen (RBC) added 12 points and Marlboro's Amanda Castro 10 in the win. Julia Grodzicki of Toms River North earned MVP honors for the South following a team-high 12-point effort. Jackson Memorial teammates Chloe Messer (10pts) and Zoie Maffei (8pts) also contributed solid efforts.
At halftime a 3-point shooting contest was held with Rumson's Julia Corsentino putting on a show in the finals to beat out Grodzicki.
