TIVOLI — Garek Duenez, a senior at Austwell-Tivoli High School, has been selected as one of the top high school basketball players in Texas and has been invited to participate in the 13th Texas Roundup All-Star game on March 17 in Maypearl.

The Texas Roundup, considered one of the state’s most prestigious events, selects the state’s top 24 boys and 24 girls from Class 1A, 2A, and 3A schools.

Duenez was selected from hundreds of nominations statewide. College recruiters across the state participate in the selection process.

As a freshman, Duenez was selected as Newcomer of the Year. As a sophomore he earned a district first team slot, and as a junior he was selected as District Offensive Most Valuable Player.

“Garek has worked hard for years to become one of the most recognized 1A basketball players in the state,” said Stephen Maldonado, school principal. “I hope his talent on the court wins the approval of the college scouts who will be in attendance.”

The boys game is scheduled for 5 p.m.
