North Carolina recruit James McAdoo had 26 points and 14 rebounds and hit the clinching free throws with 1.6 seconds left to lead the East squad to a 113-109 victory over the West in the Jordan Brand Classic on Saturday night in his final basketball act before joining North Carolina's deep front line in the fall.

"High school kind of got boring. After a while it's just the same thing over and over," the 6-foot-8 Norfolk, Va., native said. "So just getting on campus there and kind of being put back at the bottom of the totem pole is just going to be get me to work harder and proving myself once again."

Duke product Austin Rivers added 16 points, six rebounds and four steals for the East, which held off a late West rally in the freewheeling high school All-Star game devoid of much defense.
