Kentucky basketball signees Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress both looked impressive in Wednesday’s McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago.
Poythress scored 19 points for the East team, which beat the West squad 106-102, while Goodwin added 14 points. The game’s MVP award went to forward Shabazz Muhammad, who’s undecided but still considering Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, UCLA and UNLV.
“It is going to be a blessing to play with Alex and hopefully Shabazz in the future,” Goodwin told ESPN.com. “Like I said in my (earlier) interviews, it will be another repeat of what they are going to do this year.”
Kentucky’s recruiting for the 2012 class is far from over. Along with Muhammad, the Wildcats are recruiting McDonald’s All-Americans Anthony Bennett and Devonta Pollard as well as center Nerlens Noel, who is considered to be one of the nation’s top prospects.
“There’s a lot of recruiting going on still,” Goodwin said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “The big one (Muhammad)? We’re waiting on one more and I don’t have to even say his name. That’s the one everybody else is waiting on. Hopefully he picks the Big Blue.”
