The 2008 HITS All-Star Game more than lived up to the billing – it was the number one spot to be this Sunday, July 20. With the weather in the upper 90′ies, crowds galore and the best players in the city, there was no choice but to put on a spectacular showcase for the fans.
K1X All-Stars were loaded with Darren Phillip, Rick Apodaca, Special EFX, Cory Underwood, A-Money, Kason Mims, Jiggy Josh Watkins, Panama Kirkland and Stixx Williams, while the HITS All-Stars included Antwan Dobie, Kenny Satterfield, Smush Parker and Justin Burrell.
K1X All-Stars, led by Hoops in the Sun Hall of Famer Darren “Primal Fear” Phillip, defeated the HITS All-Stars 110-106. The Fear led the way with 25 points and 12 rebounds, taking home All-Star Game MVP honors for the second time in his career. HITS All-Stars started off strong in the first quarter, going up 30-20, with eventually leading 51-44 at the half. (Watch the attached clip to see Coach Bernard Bowen’s flaming half time speach!) DP took over in the third, as he scored 16 points in the quarter for the K1X All-Stars.
HITS All-Stars began to make their run in the fourth but it was little too late. Missed free throws and fumbled key opportunities cost them the win. K1X All-Stars, with the help of James “Stix” Williams (22 points and 10 rebounds) and the timely shooting of Rick Apodaca closed out the deal at another fantastic HITS mid summer classic.
Big shout to Randy & Joe Cruz for making HITS such a success – K1X is proud to be part of the fam!
