Gonzaga's Heytvelt Leads Reese's All-Stars To Win

DETROIT (AP)  - Gonzaga senior Josh Heytvelt hit the winning 3-pointer in the final minute, scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead the Reese's All-Stars to a 105-100 win over Hershey's All-Stars in the Hershey's College All-Star Game sponsored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Heytvelt went 7-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-5 from 3-point range. He also dished out four assists and had one block and one steal.

Boston College's Tyrese Rice scored 24 points and Wisconsin's Marcus Landry had 14 for the winners in the game played at Ford Field, site of this weekend's NCAA men's Final Four.

Former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson led Josh Carter and the Hershey's team, and Bruce Weber of Illinois coached Rice and the Reese's All Stars.

Central Florida's Jermaine Taylor had 23 points for Hershey's. Washington's Justin Dentmon had 22 points, and Auburn's Korvotney Barber added 17.

Each coach was familiar with his top assistant. Richardson reunited with Missouri coach Mike Anderson; the duo worked together on Arkansas' 1994 title team.

Purdue coach Matt Painter was an assistant under Weber at Southern Illinois. Weber, who led Illinois to a national runner-up finish in 2005, was a last-minute sub for former Purdue coach Gene Keady. Keady missed the game because his wife is ill.

This game, featuring a collection of seniors, looked like just about any other basketball All-Star game. Richardson's famed "40 Minutes of Hell" took 30 minutes to warm up.

Landry hit a pair of 3s midway through the second half to give the Reese's team a 76-64 lead.

Like he did with the Razorbacks, Richardson cranked up the defensive pressure, and his team stormed back to take the lead. Barber's dunk off a miss made it 80-79 to give Richardson's team the lead. The lead swapped between the teams several times over the final minutes, delighting a few thousand fans who watched the free game at Ford Field.

Taylor's dunk with 1 minute left gave Hershey's its last lead, 98-96.

Heytvelt, who scored 14 points in his final game for Gonzaga in an NCAA tournament loss to North Carolina, hit the 3 that put Reese's ahead for good. Rice sealed the win from the free-throw line.
