Capital All-Stars 129,  U.S. All-Stars 98

Capital All-Stars Get Their Revenge

After suffering a whopping 38 point loss last year, the Capital All-Stars sought revenge and got it. They defeated the U.S. All-Stars 129-98 at the Bender Arena at American University.   Montrose Christian and Villanova commit Mouphtaou Yarou led the Capital All-Stars with 20 points along with 8 rebounds, which was a game high. He played a perfect game, going 9-for-9 from  the field and 2-for-2 from the free throw line. He was named the game’s MVP. This was a excellent win for the Capital All-Stars over the consistently higher touted U.S All-Stars.  

Paul VI Catholic and Virginia Tech commit Erick Green had 10 points, Word of Life and Virginia commit Tristan Spurlick contributed 15 points and a team high 4 assists. The Capital All-Stars had a 20 point lead at the half and never looked back. The DMV kids certainly did not disappoint, but local fans also embraced and supported Maryland recruit James Padgett from New York. Padgett had a game high seven rebounds for the U.S All-Stars. Oak Hill Academy guard Lamont Jones contributed by scoring 18 points.  In front of a crowd of a little over 2,000, the Capital All-Stars put on a great display for their city and won in front of their hometown fans with ease.
