High school notebook: McCall helps West stars top East in Chicago

BY ZACH EWING Californian staff writer zewing@bakersfield.com

Ridgeview senior Erica McCall scored seven points in a resounding 92-64 victory for the West team in the girls McDonald's All-American Basketball Game on Wednesday at the United Center in Chicago.

McCall, the Gatorade California Player of the Year and a Stanford signee, was 3-of-11 from the floor and 1-of-4 from the free-throw line. The West team was ahead by 10 points at halftime and maintained a double-digit lead for much of the second half.

Mercedes Russell, a Springfield (Ore.) senior and Tennessee signee, was the game's MVP. She scored 16 points and had 12 rebounds.
