Donald Sloan’s 28 Gives Tigers 2-0 China CBA Semis Lead

Former Texas A&M star Donald Sloan had 28 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Guandong Southern Tigers past Shenzhen 98-88 in Game 2 of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) playoff semifinals.


With the win, Guangdong takes a 2-0 lead in the series.


The 6-3 guard also dished out 9 assists, only 1 dime shy of a triple double.


Carlos Boozer (Duke) had 16 points with 14 rebounds, and Yi Jianlian (Lakers, Nets) added 13 points and 8 boards for the Southern Tigers in the victory.


For Shenzhen, Jeremy Pargo (Gonzaga) scored 23 points and Maciej Lampe (Knicks) had 19 points with 12 rebounds in the defeat.


But the star of the game was Sloan, who is fifth in the CBA league in assists this season, averaging 24.2 points, 6.5 assists, and 5.3 rebounds.


A college star at Texas A&M, he led the team in scoring as a senior, averaging 17.8 points with 2.3 assists.


Sloan was named to the All-Big 12 First Team that year, and graduated eighth all-time in career points and assists.


He also led the Aggies to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances.


Undrafted, Sloan averaged 5.5 points and 3 assists in parts of five NBA seasons with the Hawks, Pelicans, Cavs, Pacers, and Nets.


A prep star at Seagoville High School (Dallas, TX), Sloan played with the Spurs’ LaMarcus Alrdidge and led the school to a 93-10 record.
