Todd plays in West Coast All-Star Classic

BELLEVUE ó Jackson boys basketball star and two-time Herald Player of the Year Jason Todd played in his final game as a high school athlete at the West Coast All-Star Classic at Bellevue College on Sunday.

Matched up against some of the best players in the country, the University of Portland commit didnít score and finished with one rebound as his East squad lost to the West by a final score of 128-98.

Before the game, Todd participated in both the boys/girls team challenge and the 3-point contest. Todd teamed up with Clevelandís Makala Roper in the team challenge and finished fourth, and then defeated Roper in the final round of the 3-point shootout by a score of 14-5.

ďIíve never done a three-point competition before so itís weird having to go from the rack to the shot,Ē Todd said after the game. ďBut it was fun. It was fun to represent these guys and you canít complain when you pull out a win.Ē

Nate Mason Jr., of Arlington Country Day School in Jacksonville, FL., took home the MVP honors for the West team, finishing with a game-high 29 points. The 6-foot-1 guard scored 20 points in the second half, including three 3-pointers in the third quarter. Mason will team up with Bothellís Josh Martin on the University of Minnesota menís team next season. Martin finished with 18 points for the West team.

Missouri commit JaKeenan Gant led the East team with a team-high 20 points in the loss. Xavier Adams scored 14 points for the East team and also won the Slam Dunk Contest before the game. Seven-foot center and UCLA commit Thomas Welch finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for the West.
