The Capital All-Stars appeared on the verge of cruising to victory in the 2014 Capital Classic, which was held on April 26 at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia.

UVa-bound wing B.J. Stith suited up for the U.S. squad, finishing with 11 points on 3-of-8 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws. The 6’5”, 200-pound Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, VA) senior scored five points in the final quarter to help his team to victory.

Stith graduates from Oak Hill on May 17 and is scheduled to enroll at UVa in June. Following the Capital Classic, he took some time to discuss his future as a Cavalier and more.
