Monday was a record night for the East-West All-Star girls basketball game.
Two mountain players and one coach were right in the middle of it.
Recent Pisgah graduate Brooklyn Allen was one of six players to score in double figures and the West set a team record for points in a 105-85 win inside the Greensboro Coliseum.
Allen (10 points) made three of her four field-goal attempts and also had five assists and four rebounds. The reigning Citizen-Times All-WNC Player of the Year has signed with Appalachian State and is the all-time leading scorer in Black Bears’ history (2,201 points).
Erwin’s Dalton Gossett added eight points, seven rebounds and four assists on Monday. Her father, Terry, was an assistant coach for the West.
“I thought those two really represented our part of the state well,” Terry Gossett said.
“For Dalton to play that way after coming back from a torn ACL in January was incredible and there’s nothing that Brooklyn Allen can’t do on a basketball court. The whole team really played good team basketball and was a joy to coach.”
Berry Academy’s Ra’Shika White was named the game’s most valuable player and finished with a game-high 27 points.
