Dreamworks vs. Team Navy 7/21/09 7PM
The return of Cleveland Cavalier Jawad Williams seemingly silenced the also returning “Carolina Connection,” at the beginning of the second game. Williams was one of Team Navy’s main offensive contributors with a strong presence under the basket, allowing Team Navy to be up by 10 at the half. But quickly, Dreamworks said "not so fast"! “Big Slim” John Henson along with “Big Smooth” Ed Davis were defenders down low, while Justin Watts and Dexter Strickland maintained the team’s authority along the perimeter. By the fourth quarter, Dreamworks had closed the gap and the last few minutes of the game were close. Andre McCullon of Team Navy was an aggressive scorer towards the end of regulation, and what seemed like an answer for Dreamworks was soon lost. Given the opportunity to tie the game in the last seconds, John Henson missed two vital free throws, but Ed Davis quickly answered with a huge power slam. However McCullon was fouled in the last 24 seconds, allowing team Navy the win, 81-79.
