Boyd’s Taylor shines in All-Star game

Delbarton, W.Va. — Boyd County senior Brandon Taylor poured in a team-high 19 points as Kentucky lost to West Virginia, 116-86, in the inaugural Consol Energy All-Star Games played at Mingo Central High School on Saturday night.

Kentucky’s girls team, which featured five 16th Region players, beat West Virginia 83-66.

Taylor’s high-scoring performance was somewhat overshadowed by an electric effort from Huntington Prep’s Carlos Arroyo. Arroyo netted 25 points, had eight rebounds, tallied seven assists and recorded six steals on his way to a team Most Valuable Player honor.

Kentucky’s boys MVP was Pikeville’s Ray Kasongo, who racked up 15 points.

Taylor’s Boyd County teammates Stefano Vaghi and Todd Stacy also participated. Vaghi scored three points. Stacy was scoreless.

Menifee County’s Paige Warren netted seven points, which was the best of the 16th Region girls. Others included Destiny Jones (Greenup County), Brooke Callihan (West Carter), Arden Gross (Russell) and Kerie Steele (East Carter).

Jones had four points, Gross three, Steele three and Callihan two.
