Three area high school basketball players who have graduated will play in Saturday's Kansas Basketball Coaches Association All-Star games in Salina.

The all-star girls' game, which features graduates from all over the state, will be played at 6 p.m., followed by the boys' game at Kansas Wesleyan University.

From the area, Hoxie's Kristina Farber, who is headed to Cloud County Community College, will play on the White team. Hoxie coach Shelly Hoyt will serve as an assistant coach. Also, future Fort Hays State University player Morgan Hood, Bucklin, will play for the Blue team.

In the boys' game, Hoxie's Kade Spresser and Plainville's Hadley Gillum, cousins who will attend FHSU, will be on opposite teams Saturday. Spresser will play on the White team, coached by Clint Kinnamon, and Gillum on the Blue team, coached by Greg Raleigh. Future FHSU Tiger Grant Holmes, Concordia, will be Gillum's teammate on the Blue team.
