Ashley Henry is excited and flattered.

The Crete-Monee senior and Eastern Michigan recruit can't wait to take the floor at 6 p.m. today at Highland High School as part of the High School All-Star Team. She and her teammates will take on the Lady McLegends, a team comprised of former local prep stars, in McLegends XII.

"I always wanted to play against the former stars because they are pretty good," Henry said. "One day, I might be a McLegend. I think they still are pretty good players and we are looking forward to a good game."

Henry will team with Marian Catholic star, DePaul recruit and Times Player of the Year Ashton Millender. The two will also play with several Indiana prep stars.

"We had a practice and it's funny we are so close (geographically), but we don't play each other," Henry said. "They are pretty good and I am looking forward to playing with them. We got a pretty good team."

Henry averaged 9.0 points and 10.2 rebounds in helping lead the Warriors to a 20-plus win season and a 10-0 mark in the Southland Athletic Conference. She will play at Eastern Michigan.

"To be chosen for this game is an honor," Henry said. "I was kind of hoping I would get picked. It will be a great time and you do get to play on a team with girls that you haven't played against before."

Crete coach Christina Cobbins said Henry will do fine and has earned her spot on the team.

"She has set herself apart from her peers in terms of the level of discipline she displays on and off the court," Cobbins said. "The stage is set for her at the next level and we're fortunate to be a part of all of it."
