Lucky Seven 90 Dreamworks 71

By Mark Carroll - Blog Coordinator

The third game of the evening was highlighted by former and current NC State stars, as Courtney Fells and Richard Howell led Lucky Seven to a crushing victory.

Quincy Miller played his second game of the night, as he suited up for Dreamworks. Miller put on an impressive effort, particularly with a dunk over Courtney Fells that proved to be one of the highlights of the night. Dreamworks led by 11 early, after deep perimeter shots from Miller and UNC-Greensboro's David Williams, but Fells rallied his team as they closed the gap to two by the end of the first quarter.

Fells struggled with his jump-shot toward the end of the half, but Howell showed off an inside-out game as he knocked down a three before scoring some hard-earned points in the post. Dreamworks stayed in it for the first half, as Miller and Isaac Smith knocked down a pair of treys before the end of the half. Lucky Seven enjoyed a halftime lead of 49-44.

Howell continued to carry his team in the second half, stretching the lead to nine with a couple of lay-ups at the end of the third period. Williams and his UNC-Greensboro teammate Trevis Simpson rallied their team with a couple three point shots to close the margin to three at the beginning of the fourth, but Lucky Seven was not to give up the lead. Simpson threw down an alley-oop dunk with just over a minute to play, but it would be the final two points for his team. Lucky Seven pulled off the win by a final score of 90-71.
