— Kansas University signee Julian Wright scored four points with four assists and four steals, helping the Gray team to a 127-126 victory over the White squad at Saturday's Jordan Classic prep all-star game at Madison Square Garden.

Wright, 6-foot-9 from Homewood Flossmoor High in suburban Chicago, hit two of seven shots, missing his only three-point try. He played 17 minutes and was a teammate of center Tyler Hansbrough, who earned co-MVP honors with Andre Blache by scoring 24 points with nine rebounds.
