Meridian graduate Kyle Schwisow was a member of the West All-Stars.

It was deja vu at the start just like in the girls game with the West racing out to a quick 7-0 lead.

Two free throws by Beatrices Rylee Zimmerman with 2:35 on the clock gave the West its largest lead in the first quarter at 21-8.
