Livingston Named Co-MVP in Roundball

Future Blue Devil Shaun Livingston got off to a slow start before quickly finding his game in Wednesday night's Roundball Classic. The Duke-bound point man finished the night with 12 points and seven assists, good enough for Co-MVP honors for the West team.

After missing his first shot attempt, Shaun Livingston turned to passing and playmaking. It worked as he helped the West All Stars jump out to a 31-9 advantage with a number of spectacular passed from Livingston to Robert Swift.

With scouts and executives from each of the 31 NBA teams in attendance, Livingston didn't try to force anything on the offensive end. He didn't attempt any perimeter jumpers, while converting 5-of-7 from the field. He also logged a pair of rebounds, and hit both of his free throw attempts.

"This game was about everyone showing how good they were. I wanted to help put on a show, but I'm not a high flyer like some of the other guys."

As soon as he met the media, the issue of a possible jump to the NBA from high school was approached. Livingston, as usual, was his non-committal self with his responses.

"I don't know right now," said Livingston. "This is all just a learning experience. Right now I'm looking forward to the McDonalds game next week. After that we'll see what happens."

That kind of answer was status quo throughout the locker rooms as other prep all stars openly left the option of the NBA jump open.

However, both Livingston and North Carolina bound Marvin Williams, who finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds said they were looking forward to continuing their friendship on Tobacco Road.

"We'll probably have to sneak it down there," he said of next year's plans.
