Trency Jackson led all scorers with 19 points, helping the Gray team to a 62-52 win over the Red team in front of an estimated 4,200 fans at Western Kentucky's annual Hilltopper Hysteria event.

The intersquad competitions with the men's and women's teams give fans a short glimpse of what to expect for the season.

And the Toppers didn't disappoint.

"I think I did good," said Jackson of his performance. "I made a couple shots, I was on fire for a minute.

"My shots was falling tonight, I did good."

Despite his leading in-game scrimmage performance, Jackson fell in the dunk contest finals to Adeoye after the 6-foot-3 guard missed on his final dunk attempt.

"Trency had some nice dunks," Adeoye said. "I knew I was going to go out there with my little routine I had and it worked, I guess, because he missed his dunk. I'm happy about it."

The Hilltoppers open the season with a home exhibition on Nov. 2 against Campbellsville.
