Julius Randle was named co-MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic, and the five other Kentucky signees had solid games as well.
Randle scored 19 points with six rebounds.
He was on the same team as Aaron (six points, six assists) and Andrew (six points) Harrison.
On the other team were Dakari Johnson (eight points, four rebounds), Marcus Lee (six points) and James Young (10 points).
Randle was also on the same team as Andrew Wiggins, and the pair linked up for a couple alley-oops.
"I’m trying my best [to convince him to come to Kentucky], but it’s on him, and I wish nothing but the best for him," Randle said, according to ESPN.com.
The game was played in Brooklyn's Barclays Center, which will also be the site of UK's game against Providence next year.
The crowd on hand included Michael Jordan, current New York Knicks players Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and J.R. Smith, New York Yankee CC Sabathia, and Drake.
