Michael
Porter
Jr.
The 40th annual McDonald's All-American game was decided in the final seconds, as the West Team knocked off the East team, behind a strong effort from Michael Porter Jr. (6'10''-SF-98). In a game full of highlight reel dunks, it was a pair of blocks on the final possession by Brandon McCoy (7'1''-C-98) that helped the West Team knock off the East Team 109-107 in the 2017 McDonald's All-American game. Although the West Team doesn't win without McCoy's blocks, it was the play of Missouri pledge Michael Porter Jr. that secured the MVP trophy, as he scored 17 points and reeled in eight rebounds. 'This is a dream come true,' Porter said. 'I just wanted to go out there and have fun. This game was competitive. Most all stars games, people go up and down and dunk, but it was hard and it was a great game.' 'To be MVP of this game it means the world to me,' Porter added. 'This is the top 24 high school basketball players in the country. This is an amazing feeling.' Porter was 6-for-13 from the field and was effective at the basket, finishing a number of plays in transition and off cuts to the rim. Mohamed Bamba (7'0''-C-98), a 6-foot-11 big man out of Westtown (Pa.) School, scored 17 points and reeled in five rebounds for the East Team. 'I think I played well,' Bamba said. 'I did shoot an air ball, there's some spots I can tweak and some stuff I could have done differently to help my team win, but overall I thought I played well.' Scout national analyst Josh Gershon was particularly impressed with his ability to protect the rim. 'I loved the way Mo Bamba used his size and length to impact the game on both ends,' Gershon said. 'You could really see his value as a rim protector. He only grabbed five rebounds, but that's an area where his physical tools will allow him to impact the game at a high level.' Jaylen Hands (6'4''-G-99) chipped in 14 points and three assists for the West Team. Brandon McCoy, Troy Brown, Billy Preston (6'10''-PF-97) and Chuck O'Bannon also reached double figures for the West Team. Kevin Knox II (6'9''-PF-99) scored 15 points for the East Team on 7-for-11 shooting, while Western Kentucky bound Mitchell Robinson added 14. Alabama signee Collin Sexton (6'3''-G-99) and Kentucky Quade Green (6'2''-PG-98) led the game with seven assists each.
