Vandersloot, East Escape West, 118-113

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Katie Douglas hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56.7 seconds left, and the East All-Stars hung on to beat the West 118-113 on Saturday in one of the closest WNBA midseason showcases ever. Cappie Pondexter led the East with 17 points, and Douglas and Tina Charles added 15 apiece. It was only the third All-Star game victory for the East in 10 tries. Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebounds and was named MVP for the second time. Former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is the only other player with multiple All-Star MVP awards. It may have been the WNBA's last All-Star game until 2013. Next summer is the 2012 Olympics, and the league may cancel the game while its biggest names play for the U.S. national team. East rookie, Courtney Vandersloot put up 8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists.
