By DAVID RISLEY - drisley@thecouriertimes.com

KNIGHTSTOWN — New Castle High School seniors Cameron Tabor and Luke Bumbalough are listed on the girls and boys rosters, respectively, for the 14th annual Hoosiers Reunion All-Star Classic Saturday at Historic Hoosier Gym in Knightstown.

Young was the top pick in this year’s WNBA draft by the Las Vegas Aces and will the eighth to make it to the WNBA.

Indiana Fever Head Coach Pokey Chatman and Fever No. 1 draft pick (No. 3 overall) Teaira McCowan from Mississippi State, the tallest player in this year’s draft at 6-7, are scheduled to greet fans from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Indiana Pacer Pacemate Kayla is scheduled to sing the National Anthem prior to the girls contest.
