Apr. 05, 1998
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Stanford recruit Lindsey Yamasaki scored 16 points to win the MVP of the annual Nike/WBCA All-America high school game on Saturday.
Tamasaki's ``White'' team beat the ``Red'' all-stars 78-75.
``It was really crazy in the beginning,'' said Yamasaki, who will also play volleyball at Stanford. ``All of us were nervous, but after a while we got into it and played together.''
A crowd of 7,506, the largest in the game's seven-year history, came to watch the 20 all-stars. Much of their attention was focused on five players headed to nearby Connecticut.
One of them, Swintayla Cash of McKeesport, Pa., had 14 points and 11 rebounds was named MVP of the ``Red'' team.
Tamara Moore of Minneapolis, who will attend Wisconsin in the fall, had 13 points for the Red Team. Takeisha Lewis, of Lisbon, La., a Louisiana Tech recruit, added 12 points and 11 rebounds in the losing effort.
Naismith Award winner Tamika Williams of Dayton, Ohio, finished with eight points and nine rebounds for the ``White'' team.
