  Vermont wins ABA again
Despite injuries to starters Issa Konare (6'8''-F-80, college: High Point) and Brett Gravitt (6'4''-G-79, college: S.Alabama), the Vermont Frost Heaves defeated the San Diego Wildcats 87-84 yesterday night at the Pavillon de la Jeunesse, Quebec City, to win their second consecutive ABA title. Dwuan Rice (5'11''-G, college: CSU Bakersfield) was named MVP of the ABA Final 8 Championships after contributing 18 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals in the final. Rice had also rescued Vermont in Saturday's semifinal defeat of Texas after Konare went down with lower back spasms. Center Dokun Akingbade (6'9''-F-84, college: George Washington) added 15 points in the final, while Gravitt contributed 12 and Dwayne Lee (6'0''-G-84, agency: Strategic Sports, college: St.Joseph's) 11 for Vermont, which ended its season 37-4. The only team to beat the Frost Heaves all season, the Manchester Millrats, lost to San Diego in the semifinals. San Diego held a 44-41 lead after a see-saw first half in which the Wildcats sank six of 11 three-point attempts. But the Californians missed All-Star guard Cardell Butler (6'4''-F-81, college: Utah St.), who sat out much of the half with foul trouble. The game went on head to head till the beginning of 4th quarter, when Vermont pushed out to a 75-67 lead, keeping the head in the score till the end. The main scorer in San Diego was Jamal Kendrick (6'8''-F-75, college: Baylor), who ended the game at 21 points. Butler finished with 14, John Clark (6'5''-G/F-81, college: Cal.St. Northridge) tallied 11, and Jerome Habel (6'10''-F-85, college: San Diego St.) added 10.

  ABA All-Star weekend contests winners
The night before the All-Star Game, in the opening event of ABA All-Star Weekend, Robin Kennedy (5'11''-G-74, college: Nevada) of the Orange County Gladiators, an And1 Tour veteran, nosed out Sean Dixon (6'2''-G-85) of the Atlanta Vision to win the Simply Subs ABA Three-Point crown. Robin Kennedy sank 13-of-20 first-round threes and 15-of-20 in the finals. Vermont's Antonio Burks (6'6''-F-82, college: Stephen F. Austin), who made just four shots in last year's 3-point competition during All-Star Weekend in Halifax, Nova Scotia, more than doubled his output this year with 11. Kenny Wright (6'0''-G) of the Long Beach Breakers sank 12 first-round threes and Sean Dixon of the Atlanta Vision knocked Burks out of the finals with a dozen threes of his own, forc-ing a three-player final with Kennedy.
Chris Cayole (6'7''-F-85, college: St.Michael's) of the Vermont Frost Heaves won the M&M Beverage Centers Slam-Dunk title. Cayole knew that if he had the support of his home crowd, success in the 2008 American Basketball Association All-Star slam dunk competition would surely follow. Thanks to a 360-degree windmill jam he earned the dunk title over San Diego Wildcat Cardell Butler (6'4''-F-81, college: Utah St.) and Texas Tycoon Mario Kinsey (6'2''-G-82, college: Sam Houston St.) at the Barre Auditorium on Friday night.
