DeRozan becomes the first Trojan to start in an All-Star Game since Gus Williams did so in 1982.
DeRozan, who ranks fifth in the NBA with 28.2 PPG this year, will make the third All-Star appearance of his career. He's also averaging 5.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game for the Raptors, who are currently in second place in the Eastern Conference.
In his sole year at USC (2009), DeRozan averaged 13.9 PPG, which was the fifth-most of any freshman in USC history. He was drafted No. 9 overall by the Raptors in 2009, and has led the team in scoring three times in his young career (not including this season).
