ican Game back in 1979, the NCAA All Star Game...The game took place in Las Vegas. Larry was named the game's MVP, scoring 17 points in an average night...He was no doubt the Star of the night though...All eyes on him... Galis seemed a little bit stressed...He did not take many shots (2/3 fgs 1/2 ft) considering the fact that he was the nation's 3rd leading scorer in 1979 with 27.5 points, just behind the great Larry... He did some awesome playmaking job though, dishing 7 assists and stealing the ball 4 times...It's amazing watching Galis defending like he did, young and athletic as never before... For history matters, the Eastern All stars, where Galis and Bird played together won the Western All stars 107-92. Sidney Moncrief and Vinnie Johnson were two more great players to participate in this game... Enjoy one more time!!!
