The 10th annual BCAT/TACA All Star game got off to a rousing start with some pre-game three point action and some serious slam dunk antics from the boys on the West Squad.

 

 

 

 

 

Once things settled down the game took on a life of its own as both teams traded leads until late when behind 24 points from Trent Gibson (Blackman) the East hit their foul shots and cruised to a 101-94 victory over the West.
