SSS’ Council plays in NCBCA All-Star Game

2 min read

GREENSBORO — Smithfield-Selma High alumnus Anthony Council did not think he would be at the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association East-West All-Stars last summer heading into his senior season — but a terrific senior season proved he belonged among the elite. 

Council is the first SSS boys basketball player to play in the game since 1998 when Kyle Stephenson represented the Spartans.

“That means a lot because coming into my senior year, I never would’ve thought I would’ve made it to the East-West All-Star Game,” Council said. “Being the first person in 20 years means a lot.”

Council had eight points in the East All-Star’s 119-80 loss. Council averaged 26.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.2 steals per game in 22 games during his senior season to earn a scholarship to Fayetteville State. The big senior season included a 51-point performance against West Johnston. The 5-foot-9 flamethrower torched his way to 1,380 career points, one of the highest-scoring players in the program’s history. Council was named to all-conference and all-region second team by the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association this season as well.
