The final score was Craig Brackins' team 114, Royce White's team 113.
In the end, though, there wasn't a loser in attendance for the game, played Wednesday before about a standing-room crowd of more than 1,000 people who jammed Valley Southwoods Freshman High School for an extra-special evening of the YMCA Capital City Basketball League.
Check back later in the day for more of some pretty awesome photos taken of the game -- and the scenes afterward.
Both White and Brackins are veterans of the Cap City league, and both returned to put on a quite a show, with fans ooh-ing and ahh-ing at times like they were watching a spectacular fireworks show.
This is the the 9th season for the basketball league, which is organized by Derek Hannah, youth sports director for the Walnut Creek YMCA and, we're proud to say, a Patch blogger.
Thanks to the league and the affection its former players have for it, Orchard Place, which helps youth with behavioral problems and mental disorders, came out a winner on the night. Patch donated a basketball autographed by White for a raffle and will donate every dollar raised.
Brackins was a Phildadelphia 76er before becoming a free agent, and White is headed to the NBA soon, after more workouts with several teams prior to the upcoming draft.
Wednesday, though, Brackins played for ADIO Chiropractic and White for Patch.com in a lively game that ADIO took on the strength of 34 points by Brackins, including five three-pointers. White finished with 14.
Patch.com's leading scorers, no slouches themselves, were ISU's Georges Niang, with 35, Drake's Richard Carter, with 29, and ISU's Tyrus McGee, with 23.
