IOWA PARK – Baron Brown felt like he set the tone for the East All-Stars on Friday night.

Chosen to represent his team in a shootout during halftime of the Oil Bowl boys basketball all-star game at Rider Fieldhouse, Brown, a recent Henrietta graduate, was challenged to make a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and half-court shot before Holliday’s Austin Jones, representing the West All-Stars, could complete the same feat.

While he fell behind early, Brown rallied and eventually found nothing but net on a half-court attempt. The shot gave the East the designation as home team for Saturday’s Maskat Shrine Oil Bowl Football Classic.

And while that may seem like a trivial detail to some, the energy that shot produced among Brown and his teammates carried over to Hawk Stadium where the East rolled to a 42-14 victory in the 85th Oil Bowl.

“That fired us up,” Brown said. “It really did get us going.”

It was Brown who got the East going in the first quarter Saturday.
