WNBA All-Star team defeats U.S. women’s Olympic basketball team in All-Star Game

LAS VEGAS — In the fourth quarter, Arike Ogunbowale was the best player on the court between 24 of the best players on the planet.

Ogunbowale, the Dallas Wings star, scored nine of her game-high 26 points in the final quarter and Courtney Williams iced the game with a last-minute layup to push Team WNBA over Team USA 93-85 in the 17th WNBA All-Star Game Wednesday at the Michelob ULTRA Arena.

Ogunbowale, who said on Tuesday she would be content with just 10 points, won the All-Star MVP award with her red-hot shooting performance in her first all-star appearance in front of a crowd of 5,175.

“It just turned out I scored a little bit more,” Ogunbowale said.

That award was the most normal aspect of an unusual All-Star Game, which was anything but the friendly exhibition between the WNBA’s best that most all-star games become.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma’s bats have bashed opponents all season.

But Thursday, as the top-seeded Sooners opened the Women’s College World Series against unseeded James Madison at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium, a real honest-to-goodness pitcher’s duel broke out.

JMU’s Odicci Alexander kept the Sooners off balance for seven innings, except for one quick burst in the third.

Shannon Saile did the same for Oklahoma, until James Madison’s Kate Gordon drove Saile’s full-count delivery over the left-center field wall with one out in the eighth, lifting the Dukes to a stunning 4-3 upset win in the WCWS opener.

James Madison (40-2) next faces No. 5 seed Oklahoma State in the winner’s bracket Friday at 7 p.m. ET after the Cowgirls squeaked past unseeded Georgia 3-2 in Thursday’s second game.
