“It’s surprising and really exciting,” Curley said of earning MVP honors. “It’s fun to play in these things [All-Star games]. You want to play your personal best and you’re trying really hard to make the team work together.”
Curley led the 2014-2015 White team to an 11-9 victory.
Green scored four goals, including the game-winning goal with one second left in the game to lead the 2012-2013 Black team to a 9-8 victory.
“It’ was extremely exciting to get MVP.” Green said after the game. “My goal coming into today was just to play well and make it into the All-Star game.”
