The third annual Iverson Classic took place on Friday with Isaiah Wong leading Team Honor to a 159-155 win over Team Loyalty.

Wong scored a game-high 38 points in the win, followed by Duke commit Boogie Ellis with 21. Kahlil Whitney (31 points), Cassius Stanley (26 points) and Tre Mann (22 points) also had strong showings. 

After spending this week training with Allen Iverson, the nation's top recruits got to showcase their skills on teams coached by former NBA All-Star Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson in front of a raucous crowd at Souderton Area High School in Pennsylvania. 

Duke commit Cassius Stanley, who is 247Sports' No. 30 overall recruit in the 2019 class, showed the skills that he will put on display at Cameron Indoor Stadium next season:

Stanley was nearly overshadowed by a fellow Blue Devils recruit when Ellis did this in the second half:

The Blue Devils better watch out, though, because Miami appears to have a playmaker coming to South Beach based on what Wong did Friday:

Even though he did most of his damage as a scorer, Wong wasn't afraid to get others involved, like on this lob to Kentucky commit Keion Brooks:

Wong's showstopping effort came two days after he stole the show at the Play-by-Play Classic All-Star Game:

From the ACC to the SEC, future rivals Tre Mann (Florida) and Whitney (Kentucky) had no problems working together:

Duke and Kentucky briefly joined forces when Stanley found Whitney on the wing for an early three-pointer:

The Iverson Classic is still in its developing stages, but it's rapidly becoming a prominent showcase event for college basketball's future stars. This year's incoming freshman class was well represented with stars who are either already established or will make a name for themselves very soon. 

On the court with well-established names, Wong turned in his second consecutive standout performance. The future is bright for him as he prepares to attend Miami, as it is for the rest of the players who showed off their skills Friday.
