Players from the 11th Blue, 10th Blue and 4th Blue teams were all named all-stars at the Big Shots Winston-Salem Tournament, which wrapped up on Sunday.

WCBA 11th Blue finished the tournament with a 2-1 record and three players from the roster made the all-star team -- Phillip Burwell, Jett Fortuny and Andrew Carroll.

Burwell scored 28 points in the first two games of the tournament before missing the third game with an injury. The rising senior at Millbrook High School posted 12 points in a 69-58 win over Tristars Team Roper, then added 16 points (including three 3-point baskets) in a 77-73 loss to TLBA in the second game.

Fortuny, who leads the team in scoring on the season at 18.1 points per game, led the team in scoring in the first game with 15 points. He scored 17 points in the second game against TLBA, then added eight points in a low-scoring win over Team FLY. Fortuny is a rising senior at Cary High School.

Carroll's biggest game came in the first game against Tristars Team Roper when he scored 12 points. Carroll will be a senior this fall at Wake Christian Academy.
