For the first time ever, the Fort Hood’s Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation, or MWR, held an all-star basketball game between the Killeen Parks and Recreation All-Stars and the Fort Hood All-Stars on Saturday at Abrams Physical Fitness Center.

In an exhilarating contest that saw the two teams go back and forth throughout, the Fort Hood squad came out on top in an 87-82 decision after two overtime periods.

Jerod Henderson was awarded the game’s Most Valuable Player award after leading Fort Hood with 17 points. Daniel Presliey and Quenpony Washington added 12 points apiece to aid their team to the five-point victory.

Despite the loss, Cedric Brooks stepped up big for the KPR All-Stars. Brooks scored a game-high 27 points while Martez Young scored 12 points, and Mike Rivers added eight points.

The MWR also held a 3-point competition, which was won by Fort Hood’s Kalrin Cowson.

According to Thomas Larry, facility manager at Abrams Gym, the all-star game had a big crowd that represented both teams well and boosted the morale of the individuals on the court.

Both teams received medals for participating, and Larry said both sides hope to make the all-star game an annual event moving forward.
