PREP BOYS BASKETBALL WEB EXTRA: Area stars come out to shine in Mishawaka

Red outlasts Blue in high-scoring McDonalds All-Star Game

MISHAWAKA — MISHAWAKA — Just like what you would expect in an all-star basketball game, there was little if any defense to go with a wide variety of scoring plays and a plethora of slam dunks.

Concord High School senior Frank House tossed in 18 points and was one of six players on the Red Team in double figures in a 140-122 win over the Gray squad Monday night in the McDonald’s All-Star Game at Bethel College in Mishawaka before a crowd of 2,631 fans.

“I came in here with the idea of having fun,” House said. “It was fun to play with all these talented players. I wasn’t really looking to accomplish anything other than having some fun.”

This was the second year for the boys game that was put on by McDonald’s of Northern Indiana (Dave and Kathleen Sparks owners) and Bethel men’s basketball coach Mike Lightfoot and his coaching staff.

“It was fun for a guy like me who has been out of coaching for 15 years to have the chance to work with these young kids,” said Red coach Bob Berger. I appreciate the opportunity that Mike Lightfoot gave me.”

Fresh off leading the Triton Trojans to a runner-up finish in the Class 1A state tournament on Saturday, Clay Yeo poured in 23 points for the Red squad. He made 11-of-16 shots, many of them on dunks.

Yeo is headed to Valparaiso next season to play for Bryce Drew.

“Of all the players Clay was the one that surprised me the most,” Berger said. ““That may be hard to believe considering he is probably going to be an Indiana All-Star and that he scored a lot of points (1,992 in his career). Before this week I wondered a little how he would fit in at Valparaiso, but now I’m sure he will be a major contributor there.”
