Defense was in short supply, but the 2014 McDonald’s All-American Game made up for it with some first-class offensive fireworks. The final score was 105-102 in favor of the West, but the real spotlight was on the individual performances of the 24 future stars heading to the college ranks for 2014-15.
One of the best of the lot is center Jahlil Okafor, a Duke-bound behemoth playing a virtual home game at Chicago’s United Center. The 6’10”, 265-pound Okafor showed off his muscle and his motor in tallying 17 points and seven rebounds for the West as the game’s co-MVP.
Herein, more on Okafor and all the rest of this year’s most impressive high school seniors, graded on their performances in Wednesday night’s contest. The bench players for each side are presented first, followed by the 10 starters, and each player is listed with his future college team.
