Kosciusko boys basketball coach Eleazarus Greenleaf has been chosen as one of the coaches for the North/South all star games. Greenleaf and Kelvin Carter of Vicksburg will be the North coaches for the 4A/5A/6A boys game.
“It's an honor,” Greenleaf said. “I'm grateful to be selected.”
The North/South games are for juniors. Four games are scheduled for Saturday, March 20, 2021 at A..E. Wood Coliseum at Mississippi College in Clinton. The 1A/2A/3A girls games tips off at noon, followed by the 1A/2A/3A boys at 2:30 p.m., 4A/5A/6A girls at 5 p.m. and 4A/5A/6A boys at 7:30 p.m.
The deadline for coaches to submit nominations is December 9. Teams will be selected January 6.
Greenleaf would like to have players with many talents. “Guys who can handle the ball. Guys who can shoot, who can play down low to protect the rim. Who can get out and run the floor. Guys who can play together and be unselfish.”
Greenleaf is entering his eighth season as Kosciusko coach with a 131-62 record.
