Ty Flippo and Jayden Hollister of Walnut Ridge High School have been selected to play in the Sun Senior Classic, a high school all-star event featuring senior basketball standouts from area schools.

The event, which features a girls game and a boys game, is scheduled for Saturday at ASU’s First National Bank Arena. The girls game will begin at 5 p.m., followed by the boys contest at 7.

Flippo and Hollister will play for the Blue Team, which will be coached by Nettleton’s Bubba Deaton.
