East 158, West 147

The 2014 Jordan Brand Classic was not short on star power on Friday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. 

All of the big names that will be playing at the collegiate level next season put on a show in front of the crowd on the home court of the Brooklyn Nets. 

The East side was led by the duo of Jahlil Okafor and James Blackmon, who both reached over 20 points in the victory. 

Okafor, a Duke commit was expected to deliver a spectacular performance, and he did with 29 points and nine rebounds, but Blackmon, an Indiana signee, came out of nowhere to raise the eyebrows of those in the crowd with 23 points. 

For the West team, the biggest name on the stat sheet was Kansas recruit Cliff Alexander, who displayed a skill set that featured strong paint play and some impressive outside shooting. 

Alexander's future teammate at Kansas, Kelly Oubre came on strong in the second half for the East on his way to 24 points. 

The duo combined for 47 points and 13 rebounds for their respective sides. 

Duke commit Tyus Jones recorded a double-double for the East with 10 points and 11 rebounds, while Kentucky commit Devin Booker scored 11 for the losing team.
