A high scoring affair...you could say that.
A game devoid of turnovers or unfortunate plays......maybe not.
The 2012 BCAT All-Star game turned out to be a nice game with the West behind six players in double digits outlasting the East 113-108 at Middle Tennessee Christian School on Saturday before the state championships.
The West built a 52-50 halftime advantage and never got more than 8 to 9 points ahead before the East made a run to narrow the gap.
Four players on the West squad led their squad with 14 points each including Marquarious Boddie (Bartlett), John Ross Glover (USJ), John Hudson (Dyer County) and Adam Weary (Ridgeway).
Cameron Golden (Ridgeway) and Demarc Richardson (Briarcrest) pitched in with 12 and 11 points respectively in the win.
For the East Aaron Wheeler (Morristown East) took game scoring honors with 23 points on a variety of drives to the hoop, slick slam backs and quick offensive boards.
C.J. Reese (McCallie) added 15 for the East and was joined in the score book by Drew Standifer (Bearden) with 13, Cody Malicoat (Jellico) and James Scales (Cherokee) with 12 points each and finally Jack "The Natural" Montague (Brentwood) with 10.
