A bunch of area boys high school basketball players were invited to take part in the annual Connecticut High School Coaches Association All-Star Festival.
The games had to be rescheduled to Thursday because of the threat of snow, but they did get played at Maloney High School in Meriden. When it was all said and done, a local standout won the MVP in the Constitution-Charter Oak game, which pitted players from divisions III, IV and V against each other.
St. Paul's Tyler Arbuckle had 27 points, seven rebounds and four assists, including the game-winning dime, for Team Constitution. Arbuckle made a touch pass to Classical Magnet's Tyriece Woods for the game-winning bucket in a 134-133 victory.
In a bit of a twist, Falcon teammate Mike Palmieri played for Charter Oak.

In the nightcap of the doubleheader, Mohegan faced off against Pequot (both teams had divisions I, II and III players on their rosters). DeAndre Wallace of Holy Cross was chosen for Team Mohegan. For Team Pequot, Sacred Heart's Isiah Gaiter and Raheem Solomon were picked.
Gaiter and Solomon are also on a Connecticut team coached by Jon Carroll that will play in the 57th JCC Schoolboy/Schoolgirl Classic on April 8 at the Cardinal Shehan Center in Bridgeport. Carroll will coach the team, along with Notre Dame-Fairfield's Chris Watts. Tyler Bourne and Noreaga Davis of the Lancers will join Gaiter and Solomon on that team, which faces New Jersey.
