Twenty-Four Athletes Accept Invitations To USA Basketball’s 2012 Men’s U18 National Team Training Camp
After falling behind early, UCLA commit Shabazz Muhammad was able to bring the West team back and then hold on after a late charge by the East for the 99-95 win. The West built an 18 point second half lead. Muhammad shared MVP honors with the East's top scorer Rodney Purvis (22 pts). Each of the participants received roughly 20 minutes of action to showcase their skills.
Shabazz Muhammad -- 20 pts, 8-14 fg, 0-3 3p, 4-8 ft, 4 reb.
