Shabazz Muhammad leads West
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, who won the MVP award, is still weighing his college choices. He is considering Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, UNLV and UCLA.
"When you come to every event you want to be known as the best player at the event," Muhammad said. "This is the elite 24, the top 24 guys in the country, so just coming in knowing that and trying to compete and everybody is competing is a beautiful thing."
With the possible addition of Muhammad, Kentucky could possibly replicate last year's top-rated recruiting class.
"It is going to be a blessing to play with Alex and hopefully Shabazz in the future," Goodwin said. "Like I said in my (earlier) interviews, it will be another repeat of what they are going to do this year."
The East trailed by as many as 24 with 12:03 left, but it 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.
