Future Wildcats Shine In Jordan Classic

There are four players in the UK Basketball class of 2014 and all four were invited to take part in the annual Jordan Brand Classic. This year's game was in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Power forward, Trey Lyles, had the most points out of the four. The Indianapolis native scored 17 and pulled down 6 rebounds. The 6'10" Lyles also hit his free throws in the all-star game.

While his stats may not have looked all that impressive, Karl Towns, opened some eyes with his athleticism and passing. Early in the game, off an in-bounds pass, the seven-footer fired up a three pointer. In the second half, Towns received a pass and quickly whipped it downcourt behind-the-back to a teammate for a lay-in. Towns finished with 7 points, 7 rebounds.

Point guard, Tyler Ulis flirted with getting a triple-double in the highest scoring game ever at the Jordan Classic. The 5'9" Ulis finished with 9 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. He shows some quickness on the court.

Shooting guard, Devin Booker, was also able to get some buckets. He hit a late step-back three pointer to finish his night with 11 points and 5 rebounds.

Just in case you were wondering, Towns and Lyles were on the winning East squad. Booker and Ulis were on the West. The final score was East 158 West 147.
