All-Stars are coming to town

Jennings, Penny to represent Logansport in girls game.

The best upperclass high school basketball players in the state will gather on Monday in the Berry Bowl, including Logansport’s own Miss Basketball Whitney Jennings and Junior All-Star Nakeya Penny in the girls game.

The Indiana All-Stars will square in a pair of games with the Junior All-Stars beginning with the girls game at 6 p.m. with the boys game to follow. Tickets are $6 each and available at the door.

Jennings gets one last chance to play in the Berry Bowl, where her No. 15 was retired before she even graduated high school. The last time she played in the Bowl she led the Berries to their second straight sectional title with a 66-52 win over Marion. She will wear the No. 1 jersey for the Indiana All-Stars.

“Monday night is going to be bittersweet for me,” she said. “I’m so excited to be given the opportunity to play in the Berry Bowl one last time and in front of so many Logansport fans who have given me so much support and encouragement over the past four years. I know that this will be my last game in the Bowl so I’m definitely going to soak it all in and just enjoy this opportunity.”

The offense for this year’s Lady Berries squad that went 24-3 and won a first-ever regional title could have been dubbed the ‘Whit and Keya Show,’ although the dynamic duo will be on opposing squads on Monday.

Penny, who recently verbally committed to play at Ball State, said, “It’ll be weird not playing with Whitney. I’ll be different.”

Added the Iowa-bound Jennings, “I’d much rather have Nakeya on my team than have to play against her, but it will still be fun to be on the same court with her one more time. I’m so proud of the player she has become and am excited to see what she can do next year in her senior year and then also at Ball State.”
