Defense and conditioning powered the West to victory as it topped the East 62-55 at the East-West game in Greensboro on Monday.
Both teams are comprised of the best graduated seniors in the state, and this year the West squad got revenge for its loss last season.
Williamston star guard Katie Paschal powered the East squad as she scored a team-high 10 points, shooting 3-3 from the field and going 4-6 from the line.
Despite the loss Paschal, who will be playing basketball at East Carolina this season, said she enjoyed her time playing in the all-star game.
“It was really fun,” Paschal said. “I played with four of my AAU teammates on the East team and my roommate (fellow Pirate freshman Alana Beroth) played on the West team, so I knew a lot of the girls. It was just a great way to finish my high school career.”
The game was split up into four quarters, with each player getting five minutes a quarter. However, with the East rallying late in the game Paschal played eight minutes in the final stanza.
Paschal’s former nemesis turned East teammate Quinyotta Pettaway of Perquimans racked up eight points while grabbing a team-high 10 rebounds.
The West was led by guard Shannon Smith of Gastonia Forestview who scored a game-high 15 points en route to being named the game’s MVP.
The West built up an early lead playing an up-tempo style, but the East clawed back to tie the game at 53 with 4:31 left to play. However, the West slammed the door shut on the East, out-scoring it 9-2 down the stretch.
“We did our best to come back, because they were beating us by a lot,” Paschal said. “I guess we just ran out of gas.”
