Jeremis Smith wins DFW All-Star MVP / Dunk Contest

Jeremis Smith did it all, scoring 27 points (in a losing effort though) and winning the dunk contest. (story here).

Jeremis Smith of Dunbar led the Tarrant County team with a game-high 27 points. Smith, a Georgia Tech signee, highlighted the game with an array of dunks in the first half. At halftime, his dunking show continued in the slam dunk contest. Smith won the title over Tarrant County teammate Robert Lee of Eastern Hills. In the final round of the dunk contest, Smith ran the length of the floor and leaped just beyond the free-throw line for a crowd-pleasing dunk. Smith was also named MVP of the game.

Guess who was the MVP for the other team? None other than Joel Bosh. Any relation you say? Yes - the younger brother of our own Chris Bosh. Joel is a 6'8" player who was not recruited by GT and will probably sign with a mid-major squad.
