Gaffney's Josh Corry, shown driving to the hoop in the state championship game, has been chosen to play in two all-star games. Gaffney High seniors Josh Corry and Chase Smith won’t be taking off their uniforms just yet.

Smith and Corry have been selected to play in the Spartanburg County vs. Greenville County Fellowship of Christian Athletes all-star basketball game.

Smith averaged 13 points and Corry, who was named all-state, led the Indians in scoring at 21 points a game.

The game will be played Saturday at Byrnes High School. The girls game will begin at 6:30 p.m. while the boys will take the court at 8:30 p.m.

Corry, who will play for Wofford next season, also has been selected to play in the prestigious Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic. Corry will play for the South Carolina All-Stars, joining fellow Gaffney players AZ Reid and Sidney Rice to participate in the game.

This year, the game will be played at Socastee High School in Mrytle Beach on Saturday, March 20. Tip time is 8:30 p.m.

“It’s a great accomplishment for Chase and Josh,” Gaffney coach Mark Huff said. “The coaches association only picks 12 players in the state to play in the North Carolina vs. South Carolina game. It’s a great way to finish off your career.”
