Andrea Womack says her daughter was talented at the sport and used to play when she attended Madison High School.

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

According to her family, Asia was participating in a pickup game at the park when it turned sinister after she won.

They claim there was trash talk involved, reports Fox 4.

Pastor John Delley said: "But this is so senseless. You become embarrassed basically because a female beat you in basketball. My prayer is that justice is served. That he is found or that he will give up or turn himself in."

Asia's family said her killer took his children and brother home before returning to the park to shoot her five times.

Kristin Lowman, of Dallas PD, said: "Detectives are still working the case. No one is in custody at this time. They've been working it since Monday night (October 3) trying to find justice for Miss Womack."

In a desperate appeal, Andrea begged any potential witnesses to pass on information to the authorities.

"If you know where he is, where his whereabouts are, please turn him in." she said. "Help the family out. We're hurting."

Crime Stoppers are offering a reward for information leading to an arrest.
