WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest women’s basketball team was well represented in the Virginia High School All-Star girls basketball game on Monday in Lynchburg, Va. Incoming freshmen Ariel Stephenson and Destini Walker each tallied more than 20 points to lead the East to victory.

Stephenson, a 5-10 guard from Prince George, Va., was the East’s Most Valuable Player after scoring 21 points in the 94-81 win over the West. Walker led all scorers in the game with 23 points and tacked on five rebounds and four steals. She is originally from Ossining, N.Y. but graduated from Hermitage High School in Virginia.

Stephenson and Walker left straight from the VHSCA Games to come to Wake Forest for summer classes and workouts. They make up two thirds of the Demon Deacons freshman class. Kortni Simmons, a 5-8 point guard from Spotsylvania, Va., rounds out the trio. Wake Forest will have a fourth new face on the roster, graduate student Keyonna Allen. The Forest Park, Ga. native graduated from Presbyterian College and will have one year of eligibility remaining for the Deacs.
