Lewis, a North Mecklenburg High guard, drained a pair of three-point shots to open the two-minute extra period, propelling the East to an 80-72 win against the West at Providence Day. Lewis' heroics rescued the East, which blew a 22-point lead with less than 10 minutes to go in regulation and needed a Lauryn Kobiela free throw with 3.2 seconds left for a 72-all tie and overtime.
"I happened to be open and took the shot," said Lewis, the East's MVP. Lewis, who finished with 15 points, opened overtime with a three-point rainbow as she was falling backward on the East's first possession. She connected with another on the next trip, all but sealing the outcome.
Wake Forest signee Chelsea Douglas (Hickory Grove Christian) paced the West with 15 points, followed by Butler's Jaquazha Barrino's 12. First Assembly Chrisitian's Paige Whitaker, a Lees-McRae signee, led the East with 16 points.
