Baye Fall, Assane Diop and Mikey Lewis, Jr. selected as 2023 all stars
DENVER – Accelerated Prep is sending three players to the 2023 Grind Session All-Star game. Baye Fall, Assane Diop and Mikey Lewis, Jr. have been selected for one of the most exciting days of the high school basketball year.
For Lewis, it’s his second selection, and second in a row. This marks the first selections for Fall and Diop.
“Being selected as an all-star at any level is always a big honor, and I couldn’t be happier for our boys. They deserve this,” said Accelerated Prep coach Mike Haynes. “Mikey is quickly emerging as one of the top high school basketball prospects in the 2024 class, and this recognition will no doubt give him added motivation going into his senior year. For Baye and Assane, it’s a fitting end to their high school careers.”
Lewis played in all 15 of Accelerated Prep’s Grind Session games, leading the team and league in points (21.2) and steals (3.4) per game. He also led the team in assists (3.3). In addition, Lewis played himself into the league’s Top 5 for total points (318), total steals (51), total field goals (116) and free throw % (83.6). He also scored a league high 42 points in an early January game against Canada’s Orangeville Prep.
Like Lewis, Diop played in all of Accelerated Prep’s Grind Session games, averaging 10.7 points, 2.7 assists and a team high 8.1 rebounds per game.
Fall played in nine games, averaging 13.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and a team high 1.7 blocks per game.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized as one of the league’s best,” said Lewis, speaking on behalf of himself, Fall and Diop. “It sounds cliché, but it’s really a credit to our entire team. Our coaches and teammates have put us in the position to represent not just ourselves, but Accelerated Prep in the all-star game.”
The Grind Session All-Star Game takes place on Sunday, March 19, at The PHHacility in Phoenix, Arizona.
