Senior Joe Dunn earned a spot in the Class of 2018 All Star game this year. The four year varsity starter was named into the All Star game following their semi-final Section loss to DeLaSalle. Along with Dunn, head coach John Moore and former assistant boys coach Michael Swann were named coaches of the maroon team for which Dunn played.

There are four All Star teams compiled of about ten players. Dunn’s maroon team won their first game with the help of his 18 points. The championship game then took place April 7th at Macalester College at 3:45. Before the game started, players from both teams sat at center court to watch trick dunks thrown down from Orono’s Jarvis Thomas-Omersa, who is committed to the University of Minnesota next year. Most of the players in the game are committed, including Dunn who is attending the University of St. Thomas next year and will be playing basketball. This isn’t the first Dunn to follow this track either. Joe’s older brothers, B.J. (2011) and Will (2012), went to the University of St. Thomas to play basketball after BSM as well.

The game was what you expected for All Stars. Dunks were thrown down left and right, while the three pointer was a popular shot selection. Dunn’s maroon team hit seven straight threes including two from Dunn at one point in the game. More of those threes came from Dunn’s former teammates Anders Nelson from Edina and Gabe Kalschuer from DeLaSalle. They played on Edina’s top travel team throughout middle school together.

Playing with them again was so much fun and it felt just like old times again. It was like we hadn’t even skipped a beat, we were all right back in 8th grade playing together.”

Each player has played a pivotal role on their high school teams, and will be playing basketball in college next year, including Kalscheur, who will be playing alongside Jarvis Thomas-Omersa at the University of Minnesota. “The All Star game was the perfect way to end my high school career. It was a blast for me to reunite with some former teammates like Anders and Gabe. Playing with them again was so much fun and it felt just like old times again. It was like we hadn’t even skipped a beat, we were all right back in 8th grade playing together,” Dunn said.

Ending in a 146-126 win for maroon, Dunn was able to finish his high school career on a high note. Without his presence next year, the boys’ basketball team will need to look for another center to fill the major role Dunn has taken part in his four years at BSM. “My high school career was an experience I’ll cherish for the rest of my life and playing for Benilde for four years and being successful is one of my proudest accomplishments. I’ll miss it but I’m excited for the next step and to play at the next level for the University of St. Thomas,” Dunn said.
