Trint Sampson, a 6’1” senior forward who will play basketball this fall at Baptist Bible College (BBC) in Springfield, won’t get to play a final prep contest.
However, he can say he was selected to play in the 43rd annual Lions All-Star Basketball Classic in Springfield.
The all-star game, scheduled for June 6, recently was canceled.
Sampson was named to the Area Boys all-star team after a stellar senior campaign that saw him earn first-team all-Summit Conference and Class 2 all-district honors.
During the 2019-20 season, Sampson averaged 19.4 points and 10.5 rebounds for a Tiger squad that finished the year with a 17-12 record, including a 4-2 mark in league action.
He also led the Tigers with 60 steals (2.1 average) and was second on the team with 97 assists (3.3 average).
Last last month, Sampson committed to play college basketball at BBC.
