U.S. All-Stars 116, Capital All-Stars 107

OH, DANNY BOY Danny Manning, Troy Lewis Lead U.S. All-Stars

The Capital and United States All-Stars combined for a record 208 field goal attempts in the 1984 Capital Classic game. Two high scoring guards from Indiana, Troy Lewis and Delray Brooks combined with New Jersey prep guard David Rivers to lead a final period surge that pushed the U.S. All-Stars to a 116-107 victory and a 6-5 all-time series lead. Future Purdue standout and Anderson (IN) High product Lewis made the most of his shooting opportunities, hitting 10 of 15 shots and four free throws, to lead the U.S. All-Stars. The two teams dueled to an 84-84 draw after three quarters, but the U.S. All-Star lineup of Rivers (Notre Dame), Lewis, Brooks (Providence), 6-10 Danny Manning (Detroit Pistons) and 6-11 shotblocker Chris Washburn (N.C. State) proved too much for the Capital team.  “We started getting the good passes inside with the three guards out front, Manning at the  high post and Washburn down low,” said United Stated Coach Dave Lebo. “Then we got some easy baskets.” Manning, who went on to be named the 1988 NCAA Player of the Year, snatched 13 rebounds to complement his 20 pints and was named MVP for the U.S. All-Stars. He also contributed three assists and four blocked shots. The Capital team was led b y 6-7 center Derrick Lewis from Archbishop Carroll High in Washington, DC. Lewis scored 18 points on 9-of-11 shooting. Wally Lancaster (Coolidge) and Terry Coffey (Maret) chipped in 15 and 13 points, respectively for the local team.
