BOONEVILLE – Northeast Mississippi Community College men’s head basketball coach David Robbins will send two of his best athletes to Decatur to play in the 2012 Mississippi Association of Community & Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-Star game at East Central Community College.

Sophomores Cedric Janes (Dyer County, Tenn.) and Jermaine Hollimon (Memphis, Tenn.) will both participate in the event that will take place on March 27 starting at approximately 7 p.m.

Hollimon, a 6-4 guard/forward, had a stellar freshman year for Northeast, and followed that up with another great performance as a sophomore this season.

Hollimon averaged 12 points per game, shot 40-percent from the floor and 35-percent from downtown. He hit 70-percent of his free throws and tallied 259 points during his sophomore campaign.

Janes, a 6-6 center, was also a big part of the Tigers’ success as a freshman and continued to perform at a high level in his second year.

Janes average almost eight points per game, five rebounds per game, and shot 55 percent from the floor for Northeast as a sophomore.

Janes was impressive from the free throw line — for a big man — hitting on 25-of-39 from the charity stripe averaging 64 percent.
