If you like defense, the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge wasn’t your cup of tea. But, if you like watching the best young players in the league do some pretty amazing things, well, you were in luck. Harrison Barnes and Team Hill defeated Team Webber 142-136 in the exhibition on Friday night. Leading the way for Grant Hill’s squad was Detroit Pistons’ center Andre Drummond, who recorded 30 points and a new-game record 25 rebounds, which earned him the MVP.
Harrison Barnes started for Team Hill and had a solid all-around game. After scoring just two points in the first half, Barnes shot out of the gate in the second half with 12 points in the first five minutes. He finished with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes.
