Shabazz Muhammad scored 20 points and grabbed four rebounds as the West defeated the East 99-94, in the 11th annual Jordan Brand Classic.
“It was important for me to finish strong,” said Muhammad, a UCLA-bound swingman. “This was the last time to go out and showcase what you can do with all of your friends, so it was important to finish strong and have fun.”
While Muhammad earned MVP honors for the winning side, North Carolina State bound Rodney Purvis was named MVP for the East after scoring 22 points in the loss.
“We all had a lot of fun this week, but it was definitely important to go out with a strong performance,” Purvis said. “You want to set the tone for what you’re gonna do next season. Since I was playing in front of my hometown fans from NC State, I wanted to put on a good show.”
