Turlock Christian's Halie Bergman and Weston Ranch's Dylan Alexander were named MVPs of Friday night's 18th annual 6 County Senior All-Star Basketball Game in front of about 900 fans at Gregori High School.
Bergman, the Bee's Player of the Year, scored 19 points in leading the Blue team to an 83-52 victory.
Alexander, who won the slam dunk contest earlier in the evening, scored 33 points to propel the Red squad to a 106-98 win.
Was Alexander surprised by his dunk-contest win?
"Not really," said Alexander, the co-MVP of the Valley Oak League this past season. "I always have fun, messing around dunking the ball. That's pretty much how I treated this contest. It was fun. I enjoyed it."
What about the MVP award?
"My teammates found me and I was making the shots. We were just having fun playing together."
Modesto Christian's T.J. Wallace of the Red team finished with 31. For the Blue team, Central Catholic's John Fenton totaled 27 while MC's Raymond Bowles finished with 22.
In addition to Bergman's 19, teammate Kaitlin DeDalt of Escalon scored 17.
"Everyone did a really good job," said Bergman. "The whole team could've gotten MVP."
Game organizer Bobby Cole said he was pleased with the turnout.
"This is one of the biggest crowds we've had in three or four years."
