Blackman’s Crystal Dangerfield and Dickson County’s Lea Lea Carter both showed well at the McDonald’s All-American girls basketball game held at Chicago’s United Center on Wednesday.
Dangerfield, a UConn signee and rated as the top point guard in the 2016 class, scored six points but dished out a game-high six assists for the East.
However, it was Carter and her West squad that overcame a double-digit second-half deficit for a 97-88 victory.
Carter, a Vanderbilt signee, scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting and was 2-of-2 at the free throw line for the West.
Dangerfield was 2-of-8 from the field (including 2-of-7 from 3-point range), including a 23-foot bomb during the first half.
