D-League All-StarSeveral San Antonio Spurs alumni were selected for and played in today’s D-League All-Star game.

Marcus Cousin, who was with the Spurs in training camp and preseason is currently the starting center for the Austin Toros and he was selected to start at center for the West.

In just over 20 minutes, Cousin finished the game with 19 points, five rebounds and one blocked shot for the losing West team, good enough for second in scoring for the West and fourth overall.

Also joining Cousin and Owens on the West squad was Cedric Jackson, who was called up from the Erie Bayhawks and played through a 10-day contract last season. Jackson came off the bench for the West, but made his presence felt with six points, seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals.
