It was just like old times at the Rookie Challenge. John Wall was dishing out assists. DeMarcus Cousins was wearing out the iron out with emphatic dunks. The Kentucky boys were once again the story. Wall and Cousins led the Rookies to a 148-140 win over the Sophomores in Friday night’s Rookie Challenge game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, host of this weekend’s All-Star game. Wall was named MVP after dishing out a Rookie Challenge record 22 assists – many of them to Cousins – in addition to 12 points.
