TOP 20 ALL-STAR GAME
White 83, Blue 73: Jawann McClellan had been hot pretty much since he stepped off the plane from Texas. In Sunday's game, he just got hotter. The Arizona-bound shooting guard led the way for his team with 15 points, including a 3-for-5 effort from downtown. One of the makes had to come from 25-feet out.
At the half, the White stars led 83-73. Their starting five of Kyle Lowry, Justin Cerasoli, McClellan, Ty Morrison and Mohamed Tangara played well together and were in control for most of the game. Lowry had 14 points and 3 steals and kept the engine running smoothly for Coach Rick Isaacs' all-stars.
Dion Dowell of the Blue stars drilled a trio of 3-pointers in the second half to get his team within striking distance, but then McClellan answered the run himself.
The Blue team was led by Gordon Watt who seriously upped his personal stock with 12 points and a great weekend effort. His dunk over Cerasoli in the game was about as big time an athletic play as we've seen anyone make this summer. Swift continued his dominating post play with an 8-point, 3 block effort.
