The West team leads the East team at halftime of the McDonald's All American, 56-44. As one would expect from a high school all-star game, the first half was filled with highlight reel plays, but was ultimately a sloppy, turnover-filled affair.
While the West takes the halftime lead, the McDonald's All American is all about individual players. Top-ranked recruit Andrew Wiggins, who is still undecided, lead the East with 12 points. Meanwhile the No. 2 recruit in the country and McDonald's Player of the Year, Jabari Parker, struggled on offensive in the first half, going 1-for-8 from the field. Parker is headed to Duke.
Kentucky's impressive recruiting class was on display as well. With six McDonald's All Americans headed to the Wildcats, and Wiggins possibly joining them, the game certainly has a Kentucky feel. The Harrison twins, Andrew and Aaron, made their presence felt connecting on an early alley-oop.
Aaron Gordon, headed to Arizona, made the highlight, or lowlight play of the half with a missed between-the-legs dunk.
To Gordon's credit, he did make five dunks in the first half and leads all scorers with 14 points.
