Muhammad leads West to McDonald's victory

CHICAGO — Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points, Rasheed Sulaimon added 18 and the West beat the East 106-102 in the McDonald's All-American game on Wednesday night.

Muhammad and the West squad finished a number of breaks with fantastic dunks, and Duke recruit Sulaimon was 4 for 8 from 3-point range.

Muhammad, who won the MVP award, is still weighing his college choices. He is considering Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, UNLV and UCLA.

Alex Poythress, who signed with Kentucky, finished with 19 points for the East. Archie Goodwin, another Kentucky recruit, had 14.

With the possible addition of Muhammad, Kentucky could possibly replicate last year's top-rated recruiting class.

"It is going to be a blessing to play with Alex and hopefully Shabazz in the future," Goodwin said. "Like I said in my (earlier) interviews, it will be another repeat of what they are going to do this year."
