Casey Bradford, a freshman at Millar College, took home player of the game honours.
The guys game started just as the girls did, with a lot of pace, but both teams soon found time to slow things down.
The teams traded leads throughout the first half, before the Clippers went on a run to end the half and went up by 10. The Edge brought the game back within three points in the third quarter but that was as close as they got, losing 78-65.
