Greensboro, N.C. – Incoming East Carolina women’s basketball freshman Ariyana Williams and Lashonda Monk played in the North Carolina Coaches Association East-West Women’s Basketball All-Star game Monday night at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Williams and Monk both played for the West All-Stars, which fell to the East All-Stars 74-71 Monday night. Additionally, Tamia Hicks was selected as an alternate for the East but did not play.
Williams led the West in three-point field goal attempts and had five rebounds. Monk was 2-for-9 from the field, made both of her free throw attempts and had six rebounds.
