    February 17, 2006Rookie Game2006(R)HoustonAndre IguodalaSophomores
    • For the fourth consecutive year, the sophomores defeated the rookie team. In a game more realistic and less crazy than other editions, Andre Iguodala stole the show with 30 points including 9 dunks (training for Saturday Slam Dunk contest) and 4 three-pointers.
    • The game started tied with a great job from Charlie Villanueva (scoring) and Chris Paul (passing) for the Rookies, but at halftime, the Sophomores were leading the scoreboard 52-45 with 12 points by Ben Gordon. Outside shooting was the key: Sophomores 4/9 3P and Rookies only 1/11.
    • In the second half, Iguodala’s exhibition put the Sophomores up by a maximum of 21 points, before Chris Paul and Andrew Bogut cut the advantage to 9 (95-86). But the Rookies had no options in the final minutes and the game ended 106-96.
    • Iguodala is the seventh player to score 30 points. Amare Stoudemire set the record in 2004 with 36. The other players are: Lebron James 33 in 2004; Carmelo Anthony (2005), Jason Richardson(2003) and Kobe Bryant (1997) with 31, and Gilbert Arenas (2003) with 30.
    • Chris Paul’s 11 assists tied for the Rookie Challenge record with Mike Miller (2002) and Jamaal Tinsley (2003), but Chris Mills has the absolute record with 15 in 1994, when only rookies played in this game.
    • Coaches: Sidney Lowe and Elvin Hayes (Team ROOKIES), Del Harris and Moses Malone (Team SOPHOMORES)
    • MVP: Andre Iguodala (Team SOPHOMORES)
