Hungarian NT beats Imports in All-Star Game in Budapest - Feb 6, 2012
Hungarian National Team - Import All-Stars 113-152 (38-41, 21-44, 27-33, 27-34)
It wasn't any defense in the game at all and the entire game was like a really long higlight. Dunks came after dunks... After my opinion it wasn't a good All-Star game (and I've talked with a bunch of people who are thinking the same). The truth is that the real Hungarian National Team wasn't on the court... the players of Szolnok (Obie Trotter, Marton Bader, Marton Fodor, Gabor Soos, Akos Horvath, Zoltan Trepak) haven't attendet the All-Star game because Szolnok played a Hungarian Cup game a day before and they had to compete in the EuroChallenge 2 days later. Two other key players of the National Team, Peter Lorant and Adam Hanga are playing in Spain in the ACB, so they couldn't come home either. A really young bunch of Hungarian players played against the imports.
