In what came as a surprise to no one who’s watched high school basketball this season, Mountain View senior Michael Ozomah took home first place in the 5A SIC dunk contest Wednesday night.

Ozomah beat a field that included Centennial’s Dayne Koch, Capital’s Andre Treadwell and Rocky Mountain’s Cam Harrop, including a head-to-head matchup with Koch in the finals.

The dunk contest came as part of the annual 5A SIC boys and girls all-star game for seniors at Centennial. Team Creech beat Team Pickett 54-52 in the girls all-star game, and Skyview’s Kelsey Higgins won the girls 3-point contest.

In the boys game, Team Boise beat Team West Ada 81-79 in sudden death overtime. Ozomah forced overtime with a dunk at the buzzer, but Boise got a lucky tip-in for the win. Meridian’s Spencer Tolman won the 3-point contest.

The 4A SIC follows with its all-star game against the 4A Great Basin Conference at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Bishop Kelly.
