Aminu Scores 4 Points in All-Star Game Loss

Monday, February 15, 2010

After jumping out to an 8-0 lead and leading by as many as 13 points in the first five minutes of game, the East Conference struggled to score, eventually falling 98-81 to the West Conference in the 2010 D-League All-Star Game held Saturday afternoon.

Erie's lone representative, Alade Aminu, played about half of the game (18:43 of the 40 minutes, to be exact) and put up pedestrian numbers: 4 points on 2-5 shooting, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks, and 3 turnovers. Still, it was a great opportunity for Aminu to play against the D-League's elite players. Hopefully it'll prepare him for a stretch run where the BayHawks will need him to be an all-star presence if they're going to make a run at the eighth seed of the playoffs.

Brian Butch of the Bakersfield Jam earned the game's MVP award for his 18-point, 13-rebound performance for the West. Click here for a full recap of the game and head over to D-League Digest and Ridiculous Upside for additional all-star weekend content.
