  • Forty of the best high school boys basketball players in the country have committed to participate in the inaugural All-American Championship, which will take place April 3 in Houston, Texas.

    “Our goal for the All-American Championship is to provide avid fans of college basketball the chance to see the next generation of All-Americans and we have realized that goal,” says Gazelle Group president Rick Giles. “These forty players have already made their marks on high school basketball and will, without doubt, make their marks on the college game. I am proud that we have been able to assemble such a talented group of young men and look forward to a great day of basketball.”

    Here are the rosters:

     

    Barry Rohrssen will coach Manhattan this weekend in the MAAC conference tournament in Bridgeport, but it appears his tenure at the school will come to an end after that.

    “Barry’s our coach going into the MAAC tournament,” a university spokesman said.

    Rohrssen did not return a voicemail seeking comment.

    The Daily News reported Tuesday that Rohrssen was informed that day that he would not return.

    In five seasons, he is 58-93 overall at Manhattan and 37-53 in conference.

    Here are video highlights from St. John’s coach Steve Lavin and his players talking about Thursday’s matchup at Seton Hall.

    If you click on ‘more’ below that, you can see video highlights of Wednesday night’s Big East games featuring Louisville-Providence, Rutgers-DePaul and UConn-West Virginia.

    J.P. Tokoto has decided his college destination….

    But he won’t announce it until Thursday night at 10 p.m. CST in an exclusive interview with the local Milwaukee Fox affiliate, WITI-TV, at Dave & Buster’s in Wauwatosa, Wisc.

    “This is J.P.’s moment so my lips are sealed as tight as can be,” Trevor Trimble, Tokoto’s father, said Wednesday by phone. “I don’t want to take away from his moment.”

    Trimble moved the press conference from Friday to Thursday to accommodate the TV station.
