GREENSBORO — The East boys’ basketball team rolled to a 107-84 victory in the N.C. Coaches Association All-Star Basketball Games at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The East shot 55 percent from the field, with four players hitting for 16 or more points.
Execution and effective defense made the East’s path to its first 100-point night since 1994 rather easy. Middle Creek product Quinton Ray, who has signed with Campbell, came off of the bench to score eight points.
“It was great preparation for the college experience, getting this chance to play with the best of the East and the West,” Ray said. “We had a lot of chemistry as a group from the start. And me, Devonte (Graham) and Tyrone (Outlaw) play on the same AAU team, so we were used to playing together already.”
Playing on a floor he’ll play on in college (for UNC Greensboro), Outlaw notched MVP honors with a 16-point, seven-rebound, five-assist performance.
Broughton alum Devonte Graham led the East with 20 points, while Chapel Hill’s Anthony Vanhook and Marquel Newkirk of Wallace-Rose Hill both scored 16.
Green Hope product David Robertson, a UNC-Asheville recruit, added five points.
The East squad was coached by Bill Boyette, the former Cary High head coach now at Fayetteville, Terry Sanford and current Rolesville coach Tommy Moore, who coached for the past 16 years at Enloe.
The girls’ basketball All-Star Game was a 67-60 win for the East. Harnett Central graduate Deanneisha Jackson was named the game’s MVP.
