Dinsdale Automotive / Classic Striv All-Star Games full of fun and star power | preparations

Written by Cody Frederick

Defensive-minded coaches weren’t happy with Saturday’s Tom Dinsdale Automotive/Stiv All-Star Classic.

But besides defense, the games featured a bit of everything.

In the boys’ game, Chevrolet couldn’t work its way back in as GMC stuck to a 120-105 win.

GMC’s Brett Mahoney of Kearney Catholics was a consistent scorer in attack throughout the match. Mahoney battled the post, made several superb cup attempts and hit 3-pointers to lead his team to a 34-21 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Mahoney scored 22 points, the highest in the game.

In the same quarter, Mahoney’s teammate Marcus Lowery got something long-running.

“I’ve got what I’ve wanted throughout my career,” Lowry said. “I finally got an immersion in the game. It made me very happy. She is obviously a great talent in the All-Star game. Everyone plays very well, and it is really fun to be a part of.”

Lowry also seemed to be having a good time on the court, flirting with other players and rocking the baby on the sidelines.

GMC’s Brayden Shrub of St. Cecilia of Hastings led their game in the second quarter, scoring nine out of 20 points. The Shrop family was having a good time in the stands, and teased him for missing a dip.

Shrop, who was the game’s top player, said it “meaning everything” if you played another game in high school.

“Just getting that feeling of putting it back on and saying ‘I’m going to play for my school again,'” said Shrop.

Mullen’s Trevor Kunkel hit a five-pointer, a shot farther than halfway, to give GMC a 59-50 lead at the bell.

At the end of the third quarter, the GMC team was leading 87-77. Loomis’ Quinn Johnson did his best to get the Chevrolet team back into the game, scoring 16 of his 18 second-half points including four pointers, a shot near the front line on the volleyball court.

Perhaps the fan favorite part of the boys game was watching GMC’s Dane Peterson, from Elkhorn, dunk. Peterson tossed windmills to the floor throughout the match and in the final seconds, gave a poem to Vince Carter and dunked an elbow.

In the girls’ game, Team Hyundai took an advantage throughout the game and left the field with a solid 78-70 victory over Team Cadillac.

Both teams looked rusty throughout the matches, with a few volleys off the outside of the arc and even one on strike. However, the score was almost equal in the first half, with the Hyundai team leading 38-34.

The third quarter is where the bout kicked off, thanks in large part to York’s players – Matty Paul and Destiny Shepherd.

Hyundai beat Cadillac 31-19 in the quarter, 15 of which came from dukes. Shepherd led Hyundai with 17 points, while Buhl scored 14 points.

“We’ve been playing with each other since eighth grade, and obviously we’ve been in college since first year,” said Shepherd, who was the top player in the game. “We’ve played with each other forever, and it was great to play with her again.

Cadillac outperformed the Hyundai 17-9 in the fourth quarter making the bottom line look closer than the game actually was.

Elmwood Murdock’s Lexi Bacon leads Cadillac with 11 points.
