Overton struggles in All-Star game

UW recruit Venoy Overton of Franklin — he has committed to the Huskies and will sign later this spring — didn’t have a real memorable outing in the Les Schwab Northwest Shootout over the weekend, a game pitting all-star teams from Washington and Oregon.
Overton scored just four points and was disqualified with six fouls, the final being a technical, early in the second half. Here’s our story that appeared on-line today.
And here’s a live blog from Oregonlive.com that details exactly what happened with Overton. As the blog details, Overton was whistled for an offensive foul, then apparently picked up a fifth foul and an intentional foul, which was apparently deemed a technical, and fouled out.
Washington won the game 96-82 with Gonzaga signee Steven Gray of Bainbridge scoring 20 points to win MVP honors. However, as the stories point out, Oregon didn’t have the services of the two best players in the state, Kevin Love and Kyle Singler, as they had already committed to the maximum two all-star games elsewhere.
