Hansbrough, who earned every bit of his 17 points, was greeted rudely on his first shot attempt tonight when Zoubek swatted it away. Considered one of the top players in the 2005 class, Tyler managed just four points at the half. His team though managed just fine without his offensive production as the Eagles held a 37-36 lead.
Shippley hit four three-pointers to give St. Louis a 59-47 lead after three quarters. The All Stars could only get as close as five points before the Eagles struck back to cushion their advantage.
Hansbrough had just four baskets, including one three-pointer. Each step he made to the basket, he was met by two or three New Jersey defenders. Each of these teams have one more pool game remaining. They will play their final pool game tomorrow before the playoffs begin.
