In the fourth the Playaz Club came out fired up as Jordan Allen scored followed by Davis & big man Keith Lumpkin but they were still down by 25. Sherrod Wright quickly brought the Playaz freshman team back to reality by nailing an NBA range 3-ball followed by a bucket to push the lead to 30.

Half way through the fourth both teams emptied their bench, unplugging the life support on this game whose final score was 96-56
