Myers Park's Shaw, Hopewell's Brooks shine at all-star game

Myers Park's Griffin Shaw (left beside Charlotte Pro-Am rep Darrell Baker) and Hopewell's DeMon Brooks won MVP awards at the 19th annual Charlotte Pro-Am All-Star game Saturday at Providence.

Myers Park's Griffin Shaw and Hopewell's DeMon Brooks won MVP awards at Saturday's Charlotte Pro-Am All-Star Classic at Providence Day.

Brooks, a 6-8 center unsigned for college, led all scorers with 24 points. He led his East team to an 84-82 win over Shaw and the West.


Shaw, who grew up dreaming of playing in this game, had 17 for the West team, tying teammate Paul Larsen (Lake Norman) for team-high honors. Shaw will walk on at Appalachian State next season.

In the girls game, Lauren Lewis wasted no time closing the first overtime girls' game in the Charlotte All-Star Classic.

Lewis, a North Mecklenburg High guard, drained a pair of three-point shots to open the two-minute extra period, propelling the East to an 80-72 win against the West at Providence Day. Lewis' heroics rescued the East, which blew a 22-point lead with less than 10 minutes to go in regulation and needed a Lauryn Kobiela free throw with 3.2 seconds left for a 72-all tie and overtime.

"I happened to be open and took the shot," said Lewis, the East's MVP. Lewis, who finished with 15 points, opened overtime with a three-point rainbow as she was falling backward on the East's first possession. She connected with another on the next trip, all but sealing the outcome.

Wake Forest signee Chelsea Douglas (Hickory Grove Christian) paced the West with 15 points, followed by Butler's Jaquazha Barrino's 12. First Assembly Chrisitian's Paige Whitaker, a Lees-McRae signee, led the East with 16 points.


East - Paige Whitaker 16, Lauren Lewis 15, Umeka Benson 12, Harris 9, Grant 8, Stephens 8, Adams 6, Heiliger 6, Kobiela 6, Awuruonye 5, Chandler 4, Valentine 2.
