The 2012 McDonald's All-American Game was held in Chicago on Wednesday night. The top high school basketball players in the country participated in the annual All-Star game and strutted their stuff in front of a national audience. The East and West teams duked it out before the game ended with the West team picking up the 106-102 win.
The two teams matched one another blow for blow through much of the first half before the West team opened up a lead and entered halftime on top by a score of 58-46. They extended that lead out to over 20 points but the East surged back and only trailed 93-88 with less than 4:00 left in the game. The West managed to hold onto their lead the rest of the way and emerge victorious.
The bulk of the screen time during the broadcast was dedicated to the consensus top prospect in the country, Shabazz Muhammad. The Las Vegas native put up 15 points in the first half and was the constant topic of conversation among the commentators. Muhammad was named the MVP of the game
Also participating in the game was Amile Jefferson from Friends' Central in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. He provided a big unguarded dunk in the final few minutes of the game. Jefferson is currently undecided on a destination school.
