CHICAGO (AP) — Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points, Rasheed Sulaimon added 18 and the West beat the East 106-102 in the McDonald’s All-American game on Wednesday night.
Muhammad and the West squad finished a number of breaks with fantastic dunks, and Duke recruit Sulaimon was 4 for 8 from 3-point range.
Muhammad is still weighing his college choices. He is considering Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, UNLV and UCLA.
Alex Poythress, who signed with Kentucky, finished with 19 points for the East.
The East trailed by as many as 24 with 12:03 left, but they mounted an impressive comeback. Amile Jefferson had a dunk to make it 93-88 with 3:42 left, but Sulaimon answered with a 3. Rodney Purvis’ three-point play got the East within four with 1:19 left, but Sulaimon answered with a three-point play of his own.
