Gordon's McDonald's dunkfest

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Aaron Gordon, who is committed to play at Arizona, scored 24 points and eight rebounds to lead the West to a 110-99 victory over the East in the McDonald's All-American game on Wednesday night.

In a game that featured an array of dunks, Gordon pleased the United Center crowd of 15,818 with a number of fast-break dunks while on his way to the MVP award.

The game featured six Kentucky commits; Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, Johnson, Marcus Lee and Julius Randle, who verbally committed a few weeks ago.

Arizona's other commit in the game, Rondae Jefferson did not start for the East squad and had trouble getting into the flow of the game offensively. He finished with nine points but did show his much-talked about tenacity at the defensive end of the floor.

Andrew Wiggins, considered the top recruit in the country and another player who might end up at Kentucky, scored 19 points for the East and Dakari Johnson finished with 12.

Arkansas recruit Bobby Portis Jr. had 12 points for the West.
