In the case of the annual McLegends game, age is nothing more than a number, and this proved to be true as the Lady McLegends took on the 2011 High School Girls All-Stars and won 105-68.

The experienced Lady McLegends found inspiration from materials said from the high school girls team this week as said by Rachel Gromala, who won the MVP of the game. “Locker room material. And after last year, when we had it handed to us, we were coming back with a little revenge this year.””

The Lady's went on a 29-5 run that proved to be the pivotal mark in the game win which they never looked back. They put on a clinic against the high schoolers. What they lack in speed they dominated in the paint with their height.
Seven of the Lady McLegends scored in double digits and they were lead by Hillcrest and Northwestern grad Nadia Bibbs who knocked down 15, followed by Gromala, who added 14; Jacquie Storm had 13; Kim Harris-Fudge, Sonya Harris and Roslyn Turner added 11 each.

“We wanted to run with them,” Harris-Fudge said. “Once we got our feet under us, we were able to get some shots. That’s what put us ahead.”

Gromala was surprised by the MVP award. She's played in this game several times and hinted that this might be her last but she wanted the opportunity to play with (Yolanda) De La Torre, one of the girls she coaches for Hillcrest. “I wanted to play because Yolanda (De La Torre) was out there,” Gromala said, referring to Hillcrest’s star player this season.

Jasmine Matthews (Marian Catholic), led the high school team with 16 points followed immediately by teammate Simone Law (Marian Catholic) who added 15. De La Torre, who's headed to Robert Morris, scored 10 points.

This was a very good and entertaining game. If you missed it, be sure to check it out as it re-aired Tuesday, April 19 at 7pm on Comcast 100.
