The second annual All-American Championship, featuring the best boys high school basketball players in the nation, provided a host of memories for those who participated and those who watched in person and on ESPN.

In the first game of a doubleheader played at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, the East team emerged with an 84-72 win over the West.

The Connecticut signee, who was named MVP of the East squad, was 8-12 from the field and 10-11 from the line on the day. Ricardo Ledo (Providence, R.I./South Kent School (Conn.)) tallied 15 points and Jerami Grant (Bowie, Md./DeMatha Catholic H.S.) and Kaleb Tarczewski (Claremont N.H./St. Mark's School) each scored eight points with Tarczewski also hauling down six rebounds.

Cameron Ridley (Richmond, Texas/Bush H.S.) was named the West's MVP for his team-high 16 points. Andrew Harrison (Richmond, Texas/Travis H.S.) had 13 points and L.J. Rose (Houston, Texas/Westbury Christian H.S.) netted 10 points and handed out four assists.

The tournament's second game featured 11 ties and when it was over, Braxton Ogbueze's (Charlotte, N.C./United Faith Christian Academy) two free throws with nine seconds left gave the South an 86-85 win.

Ricardo Gathers (Laplace, La./Riverside Academy) and Evan Nolte (Milton, Ga./Milton H.S.) led the South in scoring with 16 points each. Joel James (West Palm Beach, Fla./Dwyer H.S.) was named the South's MVP for his 12-point, 10-rebound performance. Brannen Greene (Forsyth, Ga./Mary Persons H.S.) also had 12 points.
