Teammates to face each other in all-star hoops game

Lambrick Park Lions star duo of Chelsea Strandlund and Tyger Holt will face each other in the B.C. High School All-Star Game

Chelsea Strandlund will play her last high school basketball game against Lambrick Park Lions' teammate Tyger Holt at this weekend's B.C. High School Basketball All-Star Game at UBC.

Rivals Conor Morgan (Mount Douglas Rams) and Kazutoki Kobiyashi (Oak Bay Bays) will go head-to-head once more in the B.C. High School Basketball All-Star Game.

The All-Star game is this Saturday (April 21) at the University of B.C.

Morgan, the Rams’ 6-foot-7 forward, has committed to the UBC Thunderbirds for 2012-13. He’ll play for Team Hanson, coached by Steve Hanson of Terry Fox secondary. Kobiyashi, the Bays’ star point guard who gave the Rams fits this season, will play for Team Jakobs, coached by Danny Jakobs of Mission secondary.

Meanwhile the Lambrick Park Lions star duo of point guard Chelsea Strandlund and forward Tyger Holt will also face each other.

Splitting high school teammates is a typical theme among those named to the All-Star game.

Strandlund will play for Team Woodward, coached by Doug Woodward of New Westminster, and Holt will play for Team Sollero, coached by Rob Sollero of Centennial (Coquitlam).

The duo led the Lions to the provincial AA finals in both volleyball and basketball, winning the volleyball title but losing in basketball. Holt is going to pay

Girls play at 1:30, followed by the boys at 3 p.m.
