Fresh off drawing the main event at this year’s Hoopsfest just two days ago, the Biloxi boys basketball program now has something else to celebrate.
Today, Caleb McCarty was named to the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star roster, serving as the only boys representative from the Gulf Coast.
He’ll be one of 12 players suiting up for the Magnolia State, averaging a double-double through 16 games so far this season.
His post dominance has the Indians off and rolling to a 14-2 start despite losing four other starters from a year ago.
At about 6’7”, 180 pounds, the future is bright for the Big Red senior big man. Biloxi Head Basketball Coach Seber Windham said, “Last year he was under the radar because we had so many pieces around him. When you have two 6’6″ twins, they get all the attention. We had another little guard Proby that’s at Pearl River, and so he was kind of the baby of the family last year. And it was his first year starting last year. Didn’t get the ball to him last year that much because we really didn’t have to get the ball to him. And so losing all those guys last year, losing eight seniors, he’s the guy now. But it’s just a matter of time before he’s going to put on a Division I uniform.”
The Mississippi-Alabama All-Star games will take place on Friday, March 13th from AE Wood Coliseum on the campus of Mississippi College in Clinton.
The boys will tip things off at 7 p.m., right after the girls at 5.
