↵

Washington Wizards franchise savior John Wall led his Triangle Gastroenterology team to a 73-71 victory over the Julius Hodge-led 751 South in a Greater NC Pro-Am summer league game Tuesday night. The NBA all-rookie selection had 12 points, including the game-winning free throws with 0.9 seconds left on the clock, in the victory. Hodge, a one-time ACC Player of the Year at N.C. State, had a game-high 20 points and often guarded Wall on the defensive end. He plans to play pro ball in Europe next year.

The game had lots of North Carolina flavor. In addition to Wall, a Raleigh native, and Hodge, the contest featured former UNC baller Jawad Williams, incoming Duke recruits Quinn Cook and Marshall Plumlee and Plumlee's older brother, Miles, a rising senior.

On the surface, 12 points doesn't seem like much from an NBA star-in-the-making playing against amateurs and Euro-ballers, but there's plenty of video evidence that John Wall did just fine Tuesday night:
