Mustangs’ Alissa Flowers Chosen To Coach Alabama All-Stars

MADISON- Madison Academy’s Alissa Flowers has been named among the coaching staff for Team Alabama girls’ basketball team for the 31st annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Classic scheduled for March 12 in Montgomery. She will coach alongside Mike Chase of Spain Park as the two coaches selected to lead the elite roster of girls from Alabama as they face a similar selected elite group of players from the state of Mississippi.

“It is such an honor to be chosen as an All-Star coach this year and I feel it is truly a privilege and I won’t take it for granted,” said Flowers upon her selection. “I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to coach alongside Mike Chase and learn from him. I’m excited to get to know these players with the little time we have together.”

Six girls selected for the 12-player roster competed in the AHSAA State Tournament.

Alabama girls won last year’s game at Mississippi 70-63 and holds a 16-14 edge in the series dating back to 1991.

Flowers just completed her fourth season as head coach of the Class 6A Lady Mustangs who lost in a Regional semi-final game and just missing a berth in the State Tournament after finishing the season with a 14-14 record. As Alissa Hargett, she played at Madison Academy and was a member of the Mustangs’ state runner-up teams in both 2009 and 2010 as a Class 3A program. She played for Faulkner University in Montgomery after her years with the Mustangs.

“I’m expecting this opportunity to be an experience I will forever remember,” said Flowers.
