LEXINGTON, OH - In a game that saw 210 total shots attempted and 104 total three point attempts, the North All-Stars used a second half comeback to defeat the South squad 132-105 in the 2017 News Journal All-Star Game.

The North was led by game MVP Tyson Kent, who went 11-17 from the field for 24 points while pulling down 9 rebounds and dishing out 6 assists.

"I'm just calm, cool and collected," said Kent. " I just go with the flow. When I came out here, I felt a good energy and I had to go get it."

The South was led by Shelby senior Davey Hipp, who tied a game record by making eight three pointers  while scoring a game-high 28 points.

"They just found me and I was open so I shot it," said Hipp. "At the end, I realized I was pretty close so I might as well shoot it and it went in. It was cool"

The South led 60-54 at the half and held an 11 point lead midway through the second half before a 17-0 North run put them in front for good as they outscored the South 78-45 in the second half.

Ten players reached double figures in the game while Ashland standout Griffin Gerwig was the only player to record a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
