Five of the area's top boys basketball players are scheduled to compete in the fourth annual NorCal Clash basketball showcase game 1:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at Contra Costa College in San Pablo.
Sheldon's Dakarai Allen, D'Erryl Williams and Darin Johnson will play for the Class of 2013 team while emerging national recruit Malik Pope joins 6-foot-8 Cameron Oliver of Grant on the Class of 2014 team.
