Jackson’s Brett Kingma to compete at national event

Jackson sharpshooter Brett Kingma will compete at the 2011 National High School Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships. Here are the details:

CHICAGO – Ten of the 16 roster spots have been filled for the 2011 National High School Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships, as selected by MaxPreps.com, the online high school sports leader and a CBSSports.com site. Sheldon McClellan and DeAndre Daniels highlight the all-star roster of seniors, who will compete at 7 p.m. CST April 1 at the Berry Center in Houston, Texas. The event, which is owned and operated by Intersport, will air on CBS Sports April 3 (4:30-6 p.m. EST), with numerous encore showings on CBS College Sports Network.

Five of the 10 players are listed on MaxPreps.com’s Top 100 Players to Watch List, including No. 20 Daniels and No. 29 McClellan. Daniels averaged a double-double (14.9 points, 10.2 rebounds) as a junior at Taft High School (Calif.) and has not yet committed to a college program. McClellan, a native of Houston, averaged 24.0 points per game this season and is headed to the University of Texas next year.

A total of eight dunkers and eight 3-point shooters will be selected by MaxPreps.com to participate in the event. At least one slam dunk participant will be selected via video submission. To submit a video, please visit www.maxpreps.com. Videos must be received by Friday.

“This is a very accomplished group of high school seniors,” MaxPreps.com basketball editor Jason Hickman said. “I expect they will put on quite a show for fans in the Houston area and nationwide via CBS Sports. There are five players in this group that averaged over 30 points per game this season. Sheldon McClellan will be a huge local favorite, but 5-foot-7 Kiwi Gardner has a chance to be the star of the show in the dunk contest.”

Intersport, a media and marketing company based in Chicago, is the creator and manager of the event. Intersport owns two additional high school properties: Kirk Herbstreit National Kickoff Classic and the Under Armour High School All-America Football Game, as well as the College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships.

Tickets for the 2011 National High School Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships are $10 for adults and $7 for students. Tickets can be purchased at www.highschoolslam.com. The Berry Center is located at 8877 Barker-Cypress Road, Cypress, Texas.
