Europe 93 – Rest of the World 89
The Rest of the World started the first period fine, until they could not find an answer to defend the European Euroleague All-Star Game MVP Agnieszka Bibrzycka. There was no answer to the hot hand of Bibrzycka who scored 6/10 from three point land to hep her squad squeeze out the close win over the Rest of the World. Rebecca Brunson, the highest scorer for the ROW, played well however, overall the defensive and offensive effort of Angel McCoughtry pushed her team closer to the victory but was not enough.
