“I’m also proud for Lisa. She’s such a hard-work­ing coach. She’s some­one who works re­ally hard to beat you, and I can’t think of any­one who’s more de­serv­ing to coach in this.”

Rogers is Austin’s sec­ond player in past three years to be cho­sen as a North Al­lS­tar. The last Spring Gar­den player se­lected was Tykeah Rogers in 2015, Tiy­onna Rogers’ sis­ter.

Tykeah Rogers, now at Faulkner, fin­ished with five points and grabbed seven re­bounds to help the North rally from a 12-point sec­ond- half deficit and claim a 60-56 vic­tory over the South in July of 2015.

“My sis­ter got to play in it and she said it was real fun,” Tiy­onna Rogers said. “I’m go­ing to talk with her about what to ex­pect. “Coach Rat ( Austin) was like ‘You’ve got to step it up’, and that’s what I’ve been try­ing to do. I’m work­ing hard. I’m play­ing against the guys to try and make me bet­ter and get ready.
