Blue Devils combine for 59 in Jordan BC

Jahlil Okafor wins yet another MVP award while Tyus Jones nearly collects a triple-double

Once again the entire Duke recruiting class of 2014 was on display at a top all-star event. This time the quartet of Okafor, Jones, Winslow, and Allen combined for 59 points on Friday night.

On a night when the story was all about the offense, the four future Blue Devils helped fuel an entertaining exhibition that was full of offensive firepower and completely lacking in defensive presence or effort.

Center Jahlil Okafor, the high school National Player of the Year, took home another MVP award after scoring 29 points (13-of-17 shooting) and grabbing nine rebounds in only 23 minutes of action for the East team which won 158-147. The 29 points was tied for second all-time behind LeBron James' 34 back in 2003.

Feeding Okafor for most of the night was future teammate and best friend Tyus Jones, the Minnesota point guard who coordinated his recruitment with Okafor for more than a year. Jones finished the night flirting with a possible triple-double, recording 10 points, 12 assists, and seven rebounds.

Grayson Allen was also on the East squad and despite some early struggles that saw him turn the ball over on his first three attempts, the Florida scoring guard managed to finish with seven points and four rebounds in 16 minutes.

After putting together a near MVP performance in the Nike Hoop Summit, Justise Winslow had a somewhat quieter afternoon playing for the West team. Winslow came off the bench to hit six of 11 shots on his way to 13 points and two rebounds. Known for his defensive prowess, Winslow also added a game high three steals while defending the shooting guard, small forward, and even power forward positions.
