OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2017 UCW 33 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM • Jack Britt boys' basketball coach Ike Walker Jr. has been named the assistant coach for next March's Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic. The game, which will pit some of the top boys' senior basketball play- ers from North and South Carolina against each other, is scheduled to be played in Wilmington on March 24. Walker will be assisting Lee Reavis of Northwest Guilford. This is Walker's second all- star coaching experience. He previously coached the East squad in the annual N.C. Coaches Association All-Star game in Greensboro. "Any time Phil Weaver calls and says, 'the board has selected you,' it's an honor,'' said Walker. Weaver is the executive director of the NCCA. "I have a lot of respect for the NCCA and its mis- sion, so when a distinguished group of your profes- sional peers recognizes you and asks you to serve, it's impossible to say no,'' Walker said. "I look for- ward to representing my family, our state, my city and Jack Britt High School.'' This will make the second straight year Britt has had an all-star coach. Last summer, Britt girls' coach Nattlie McArthur coached the East girls in the annual East-West game in Greensboro. Walker has a career record of 269-201 with three reg- ular-season conference titles and four conference tour- nament titles. He's been to the Eastern Regional four times and to the 4-A East Regional finals three times. • E.E.

Spivey Junior High School. He has coached at every level, from junior high to college and pro- fessional football. Tickets to the event are $25 and include food, a bever- age and gifts for Harris.
