There was a lot of great talent on display in Chicago, and (at least) 11 of those 24 players are headed to either Duke, Kentucky or North Carolina next season.

Justin Jackson (North Carolina), Jahlil Okafor (Duke), Emmanuel Mudiay (Southern Methodist), Rashad Vaughn (UNLV) and James Blackmon Jr. (Indiana) were the leading scorers Wednesday night, showcasing the skills that they'll be bringing to their respective schools in a few months.
