Bridge2Sports All-Stars shut out Wall, NBA stars

By Mark Carroll - Blog Coordinator

Shortly following the East-West Bridge2Sports All-Star game, the Bridge2Sports All-Stars took the court to face the number one overall pick of the 2010 NBA Draft, John Wall, and four other high profile standouts in a wheelchair match-up.

Wall, accompanied by Josh Powell of the Atlanta Hawks, Jawad Williams of the Cleveland Cavaliers, C.J. Leslie of NC State and Julian Gamble of Miami, struggled throughout the contest as he and his team were unable to keep up with the pace of their opponents.

Jeremy Smith got an early bucket to put his team up by four in the first couple minutes. Mike Adkins knocked down a three pointer and the game really got out of hand when Andrea Woodson-Smith's lay-up bumped the score up to 11-0.

Fans caught a good laugh as Wall, Leslie and Gamble each missed from point blank range down the stretch. Kevin Bailey's two pointer with 40 seconds remaining was the last basket of the game as the Bridge2Sports All-Stars got the surprising shutout, 15-0.
