The rookie-sophomore game is enjoying a facelift, with first- and second-year players combining to make up the two teams. Perhaps the new look and process (the chosen players were drafted onto teams by Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley) will inspire the players to compete more than is typical in these exhibitions, which often feature amazing athletes with great skill playing lots of one-on-none and four-on-one basketball. So the point totals swell, to say the least.
