Lott ready to shine in all-star game

PORT ARTHUR — Torian Lott is no stranger to the basketball court.

Lott was a four-year starting point guard for the Port Arthur Memorial Titans and now has another chance to show off his skills to all of us in Southeast Texas.

The Memorial standout  was among those chosen to play in tonight’s Southeast Texas Coaches’ Association all-star game. The game will be held at Hardin-Jefferson but the exact tip time unknown as it is the third game of the evening.

    An all-star volleyball game will start at 5 p.m. at H-J to be followed 30 minutes later by a girls’ basketball game. The boys take the court 30 minutes after the conclusion of the girls game.

There is a lot to be excited for in the mind of Lott. He helped guide the Titans to regional semifinals this past season and recently signed a scholarship to play at McMurry University in Abilene.

Now he is pumped up to have the opportunity to play with some of the area’s best talents.

“It is going to be a lot of fun,” Lott said. “It was just an honor to be selected to play on the team. I feel it is going to be a fun weekend.”

Lott said weekend because Friday will not be the only time Lott represents Memorial for STCA. Lott will also play in Saturday’s all-star football game to be held at The Thomas Center.

“The football game is going to be intense,” Lott said. “It is going to be a fast game and have a lot of hard hitting.”

First though, Lott will be in his normal role as the court general. One person Lott is hoping makes it to the hardwood at Hardin-Jefferson is Class 4A Player of the Year and Nederland star Colton Weisbrod.

“Man, that will be a lot of fun running some offense with that guy,” Lott said. “I can’t wait to set a pick-and-roll with Weisbrod. I love being on the court with a big man. They make my game that much easier.”

Lott will be joined on the East team by Memorial teammates Albert Jacobs and Darren Williams. Nederland’s Tyler Toon is also expected to play along with Silsbee’s Chris Elam, Patrick Reed and Zayon Jackson. LC-M has two players on the team, Trumaine Elmore and Blake Fuss, and Vidor is expected to send Grant Allen.

“It will be the last game for me on the same court with AJ and Darren as Titans,” Lott said. “That will be real special. We had to get more one game in together. It should be a real fun night. I can’t wait.”
