Drew League All-Stars Beat Beijing's Bloomage One

LOS ANGELES — The Drew League season had one more game for the community. And they shared it with the world.

 

After the 2016 Drew League championship at Los Angeles Southwest College, the Drew League returned to King Drew Medical Magnet and hosted Bloomage One, an elite streetball team from Beijing, China. A team of select Drew League players defeated the squad from China 112-82.

 

Tyrone “50” Riley (San Francisco) of Bulldogs led the Drew League All-Stars with 28 points, with Steve Alford (Western Washington) of Problems adding 26. 18 of Alford’s points came in the 1st half.

 

Jiachun Zhang led Bloomage One with 21 points.

 

The Drew League All-Stars won every quarter against Bloomage One, effectively using their size advantage as well as getting several easy baskets in transition. Even when the Drew League All-Stars gave up a basket, they would advance the ball with lead passes that led to easy layups.

 

In addition to Riley and Alford, the Drew League All-Stars starters were F Larry Anderson (Long Beach State) of Citi Team Blazers, C Darnell Martin Jr. (Dominguez Hills) of Houdini’s All-Stars, and G Antonio Biglow (Montana State) of Houdini’s All-Stars. The team also featured Tim Johnson (Cameron), Ervin Ware (Mount San Antonio College), and Tim Meneghin (Central Florida) of 2016 Drew League champions BB4L, and Robert Walls, a member of the Drew Crew.

 

This exhibition contest marks the official end of the Drew League’s 43rd season.
