Capital Classic 2011: Jabarie Hinds Is MVP As U.S. All-Stars Win Easily

The 38th annual Capital Classic was never much of a game. Led by West Virginia recruit Jabarie Hinds, the U.S. All Stars rolled to a 136-115 win over the Capital All-Stars in the main game in Upper Marlboro. 

Hinds won MVP honors by scoring 19 points, and he was one of eight players for the U.S. All-Stars to score in double figures. VCU recruit Treveon Graham had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Capital All-Stars. Georgetown recruits Mikhael Hopkins and Greg Whittington didn't make much of an impact, scoring six points each for the Capital All-Stars. Meanwhile, Sterling Gibbs, a Maryland recruit, sat out due to injury.

The game didn't attract nearly as many top recruits as many previous games, and the game itself was actually in jeopardy of being cancelled back in December. Instead, the show went on, and the event still was impressive for those in attendance.

In the opening game, the Suburban All-Stars topped the District All-Stars, 104-97.
