Five local basketball players from the community have been selected to play for Team Mississippi in the USA games in Atlanta, Georgia. Players on Team Mississippi will be representing schools from across the state, but the five area kids are representing Meridian High School, Lamar School, and West Lauderdale High School. These players are Jederion Lewis, X'Zorion Creer, Demontae Robinson, Demarcus Powe, and Parker Henry. This is a group of incoming freshmen and will play in the Rising Ninth Grade Division against many neighboring states. The tournament will take place this weekend.
