Tuesday Trivia

Last week's question:

Dwyane Wade dealt Kobe Bryant a particularly hard foul during the NBA All Star game actually drawing blood and breaking Bryant's nose. The foul was one of four Wade picked up in the game. Who was the last player to actually foul out of an All Star Game? Yes, it has happened.

25 years ago, back when he was still just Akeem Olajuwon and not Hakeem Olajuwon, the Houston Rockets' center fouled out of the 1987 All-Star Game. The game did go into overtime, but Olajuwon only played 26 minutes. Still, 'The Dream' isn't the only player to foul out of an all star game. Heck, a couple of Hall of Famers actually did it TWICE. The other offenders:

Rick Barry - 1978
Willis Reed - 1970
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - 1970
Rick Barry - 1966
Bill Russell - 1965
Johnny Green - 1965
Walt Bellamy - 1962
Richie Guerin - 1962
Bob Cousy - 1961
Dolph Schayes - 1959
Paul Arizin - 1956
Bob Cousy - 1956
Bill Sharman - 1956
Bobby Wanzer - 1954

When Japan shut out the U.S. Women's Soccer Team 1-0 yesterday it marked the first time that the U.S. had failed to score a goal since a scoreless draw with Korea back in 2008, a span of 57 matches. Only two women started both of those games for the United States. Who are they?
