Basketball: Plant City teammates rev it up in one of two all-star games

TAMPA — Plant City teammates Stephen McIntyre and Alton Honors provided the spark late in the game Friday night as the East squad went on to an 85-77 win in the 25th UNCF All-Star Game.

McIntyre and Honors, who led Plant City to 17 wins this past season, combined for 31 points as the East went on a 15-6 run to close out the game, played at Jefferson High.

McIntyre scored 16 points and Honors added 15. McIntyre was named the game's MVP.

"We had a lot of chemistry being teammates," McIntyre said. "We came in and this team just clicked. We had a spark and it was an awesome experience to play this game. It was a lot of fun."

The East trailed 38-36 at the half and led throughout the second half, but found the score tied at 63 with eight minutes remaining. That was when the Raiders' duo, along with Hillsborough's Antonio Chow, helped lead the rally.

Gaither's Resha Talley led the West with 13 points, while Jefferson's Michale Kinsey Jr. added 11 and Daminion Royal of Leto scored 10.

The girls' game was not as close.

The West jumped to an early lead and cruised to a 74-54 victory.

Reachal Reid (Leto) scored 14 to lead the West, which also had solid performances from Tampa Prep's Latora Lofgren and Jefferson's Jade Givens, who both scored 11. Tampa Catholic's Sarah Brennan and Hillsborough's Jacinda Myers-Sanders added eight points apiece.

Reid, who also won the girls 3-point contest, was named game MVP.

Tampa Bay Tech's Jasmine Rodriguez led all scorers with 19 points in a losing effort.
