44th Annual Capital Classic - District All Stars Reign Supreme
Suburban guard Jason Aigner was named MVP after posting a game high 16 points
The first quarter saw both teams trying to get acclimated to the bright lights of the Verizon Center. As the teams settled down, their talent started to show. Suburban forward Zion Cousins (Howard) made his impact early, blocking shots and running the floor for offensive put backs to help give the Suburban All Stars a 20-17 lead after one. District responded in the second behind the transition scoring from guards Terence Lewis (National Christian), Matt Lewis (O‘Connell / JMU) and George Mawanda-Kalema (Episcopal / Brown). The trio combined to score 22 of the Districts first half points to give the District All Stars a 48-43 halftime lead.
Third belonged to District guard Jahlil Jenkins (VA Academy / Fairleigh Dickinson). Jenkins wowed the crowd with 9 points in the period to help push the District to a 75-57 lead. As with all star games, the 18 point lead wasn't close to being enough. Suburban All Stars started the final period on a 15-4 run behind the shooting of Jason Aigner (WT Woodson / Newport University) to make it 79-72 with 4:39 left in the game. However, the District regrouped to finish off the Suburban All Stars 97-87. Aigner took home MVP honors after posting a game high 16 points on 6-10 shooting from the field including 4-8 from three point range.
Suburban All Star Darron Barnes drives hard to the basket looking to score over two District players. Barnes posted 9 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assist in an all around effort.
Districts George Mawanda-Kalema takes flight for two of his 9 points
Terrence Lewis with the flush on his way to a near double double of 10 points and 9 rebounds
