What Had Happened Was: 3/30/17

Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Two incoming Texas recruits saved the day as the East rallied from a 13-point deficit in the girls’ McDonald’s All American Game to beat the West, 80-74, in overtime on Wednesday.

Rellah Boothe (IMG Academy) and Chasity Patterson (North Shore) showcased a tag-team effort, flashes of what they’ll do for the Longhorns next season, to help get the East back into the game at the United Center in Chicago.

Boothe, who was named the game’s MVP, had 18 points, nine rebounds and two blocks, while Patterson, the winner of the girls’ 3-point contest on Monday, chipped in with 14 points and a game-high six assists.

Although Patterson was the winner of the 3-point contest, it was Boothe who connected on back-to-back deep balls to help swing momentum back into the East’s favor.

“I knew they were going in,” said Boothe. “I had something telling me they were going in.”
