UCLA's Steve Alford watched his son, Bryce Alford, a spring graduate of La Cueva (Albuquerque, N.M.), pour in 33 points to lead the North Class 4A/5A All-Stars to a wild 119-101 victory over their counterparts from the South, according to the Albuquerque Journal. Bryce Alford, who will be a freshman at UCLA in the fall, drilled 10 of 19 shots - including seven 3-pointers - and was 6-for-6 at the free throw line.

Craig Neal, who succeeded Steve Alford as head coach at New Mexico, was treated to 24 points from his son, Cullen Neal, who will be a freshman in the fall at New Mexico.

Bryce Alford told the Albuquerque Journal, "Awesome. I couldn't ask for anything more. We had a lot of fun."

Cullen Neal added, "We got tired, but it was a blast."

The contest was played before a sellout crowd of 2,500 at Albuquerque High and several hundred spectators had to be turned away.
