Prep Basketball: Evans shines for East

Associated PressLate Wednesday
MILWAUKEE ó Tyreke Evans scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the East to a 107-102 victory over the West in the McDonald’s All-American High School Basketball boys game on Wednesday night.
Evans, one of the two uncommitted players participating in the game featuring the top high school talent, took over late in the second half after the East had closed the West’s lead to 82-80.
Evans is still considering Memphis, Connecticut, Villanova and Texas and says he’ll make a decision on April 16. He had a series of slashing drives to the basket to open a 95-88 lead, none more impressive than when he faked out a defender and forced his way through Demar DeRozen, drawing a foul as he made the basket.
Evans, who went 9-of-15 from the field, missed the ensuing free throw, but the East stretched the lead back to 99-88 with 3:29 left and the West never got closer than the final margin.
The East also got strong performances from Michael Rosario (18 points) and Kemba Walker (13 points).
