Team WNBA Takes Down Team USA in WNBA All-Star Game

On Wednesday, the WNBA All-Star Game returned for the first time in two years with a new Olympics-influenced setup. When the final buzzer sounded, fans were certainly not disappointed.

Team WNBA defeated Team USA, 93-85, behind a 26-point game from Wings guard Arike Ogunbowale. The first-time All-Star took home game MVP honors after shooting 10-for-18 from the field to lead Team WNBA to a strong fourth-quarter finish.

The game pitted the 12 selections for Team USA that will be headed to Tokyo for the Olympics against the remaining WNBA All-Stars, and it was tightly-contested throughout. Team WNBA held a 44-43 lead at halftime, while the game was tied heading into the fourth quarter.
