Two of basketball’s ugliest uniforms got together for the McDonald’s All-American game Wednesday night in the Windy City and on your televisions on ESPN. The game, which featured six future Wildcats, at least, was your typical high school all-star game snoozefest with an occasional Aaron Gordon jam mixed in. There were bricks, turnovers, airballs, bricks and turnovers, with very little defense from either side. Like I said, your typical high school all-star game.
Our own Kristen Geil was in the building and she’ll be by shortly with a recap of the evening. For now, just know that Aaron Gordon took MVP honors with 24 points and eight rebounds in a winning effort for the WEST, while Jalen Rose and Jay Williams were brutal on the TV broadcast. In Andrew Wiggins news, he proved he’s more than just a scorer by shutting down Jabari Parker.
Julius Randle and the Harrisons looked great. You’re going to love Lee, Johnson and Young, too.
