Outlaw, Byrd Shine on New Home Court

Incoming UNCG freshman Tyrone Outlaw (Roxboro, NC) was named MVP of the NC Coaches Association East-West All-Star game that was played last night. Outlaw helped his East squad to 107-84 victory. He scored 16 points (2-2 3 pt) and grabbed 7 rebounds.

Outlaw's future teammate, Clay Byrd (Connelly Springs, NC) played for the West team. Byrd poured in 16 points on 4-9 shooting from behind the 3 point arc.

I also thought this was an interesting tidbit from that Durham Herald-Sun article ...
Former Chapel Hill High School forward Anthony Vanhook put in some more of those unorthodox shots that befuddled teams in the Carolina Conference. He had 16 points to go with seven rebounds and said there is a college team out there that can use a guy like him with a knack for finishing around the rim.
Vanhook (6-3, 208) said his college basketball options are open, but he's considering joining Outlaw at UNC-G as a walk-on.
