The stars were out in Chicago on Wednesday night as the West battled the East in the McDonald's All-American Game. The nation's top high school seniors, all of which are committed to top-flight basketball programs, used the game as a chance to showcase their skills once more while cultivating some of the rivalries we'll see on the college court beginning next year. The East fired out of the gate and never looked back, using its star-power to down the West in the All-American Game, 111-96.
Portland forward Kyle Wiltjer, Kentucky bound in the fall, scored 11 points and handled himself well against some of the nation's best high school seniors. Wiltjer showed both an inside and outside game, hitting a three in the first half and getting free for a variety of post moves throughout the game.
Michael Gilchrist and James McAdoo shared MVP honors for the winning East squad. McAdoo, a North Carolina signee, finished with 17 points while Gilchrist, part of the loaded Kentucky class, finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds in the win. Anthony Davis, another Kentucky signee, scored 14 points for the West in the loss.
