CHICAGO (AP) -- Mercedes Russell had 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead the West to a 92-64 win over the East in the McDonald's All-American girls game at the United Center on Wednesday night.

The Tennessee signee was voted the MVP.

The West jumped out to a 20-10 lead behind Tyler Scaife's seven points. Rebecca Greenwell extended the lead to 31-13 on a 3-pointer.

Scaife, the player of the year from Arkansas, finished with 15 points and four assists.

Diamond DeShields had 15 points and Makayla Epps added 13 for the East. DeShields signed to play at North Carolina and Epps signed with Kentucky.
