Katie Collier made two foul shots for the West with 16.4 seconds left, tying it at 68. Graves was fouled by Collier on the ensuing possession, and Graves made the first free throw to put the East ahead with 0.3 seconds remaining. She missed the second, but time expired before the West could attempt a shot."I was ready for it to be over, but I still wanted to play because it was great experience out there and it was fun playing on the court knowing a lot of greats already played on it," Graves said.In other news:
