    And obviously the East is going to win. The west team only has one point guard, no centers, and a shit ton of wing players.

    Ricky P says help is on the way. I can’t wait to see how good all the new UL recruits are when they play in this game. Oh wait…

    Will Quincey Miller be healthy for this game ? They should replace him with the Plumlee kid thats going to duke , after all he’s a McD’s AA and ranked 93rd in the nation .

    UL players held out of the Jordan Classic in order to be able to play in the Derby Classic.

    Wait…is this right? I don’t see Louisville on either of those lists

    Not complaining by any means, but Johnny O would have been a nice get. At 6’10” 245 he will be a banger for a HORRIBLE LSU team. Why would anyone want to go there? He’s not even from LA.

    20- Kid from SeMO looking at Mizzou, Gtown, and surprisingly my alma mater Missouri State 4* on most sites very surprised to see him in the game.

    Its not that wayne blackshear and chane behanan weren’t good enough to play in the game… it was just that they committed to the derby city classic. Rules state that a high school player can only play in 2 all star games.
