The East-West Bridge2Sports All-Star game was a physical match-up, as the Thunder squared off with the Bulldogs.
Michael Whitlock and Tee Foster played excellent early in the contest, helping the Bulldogs to an early lead. Whitlock's two points from under the basket helped give his team a 26-22 lead.
NCCU alum Andrea Woodson-Smith had answers on the other end, however. The former gold medalist contributed multiple baskets late in the game to reclaim the lead for the Thunder.
The Bulldogs made a late-game surge, and Foster's lay-up with 34 seconds to play brought the game within one. On the ensuing Thunder possession, the Bulldogs got the steal and an opportunity to hit the last shot to win the game. Through tight defense, the Thunder was able to hold on to claim the victory.
Woodson-Smith was named Most Valuable Player after the contest.
