A man has been sentenced for killing a 21-year-old woman who beat him in a game of pickup basketball in Dallas.

On Tuesday (February 6), Cameron Jamaal Hogg, 32, pleaded guilty to murdering Asia Womack in October 2022. He was sentenced to 20 years year in prison, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The sentencing comes after Womack won a pickup basketball game against a man her family described as a friend at T.G. Terry Park just up the street from her Dallas home. The man left the park after the game to take his kids and brother home and then returned to open fire.

"This was supposed to be a friend of Asia's. She's eaten with the man," Womack's mother, Andrea Womack, previously said. "She's fed him, and he turned on her and killed her in a vicious way."

Family and loved ones believe the man killed Womack out of embarrassment.

"But this is so senseless," Pastor John Delley said at the time. "You become embarrassed basically because a female beat you in basketball."

Surveillance footage from a nearby store captured a car speeding away after the October 2022 incident. Hogg was arrested later that month.

“We’re taking it kind of hard because it was senseless,” Womack’s aunt, Juanita Smith, previously said. “I just don’t understand why you kill somebody over a basketball game.”
