The McDonald's All-American Game, featuring some of the best of the best high school basketball seniors in the country, was played Wednesday night at United Center in Chicago.

Apple Valley's Tyus Jones, DeLaSalle's Reid Travis and former Robbinsdale Cooper standout Rashad Vaughn gave Minnesota three of the 24 players invited to the game. Jones is headed to Duke, Travis to Stanford and Vaughn, who played his senior year of high school basketball at a prep school near Las Vegas, has committed to UNLV.

Jones played for the East while Travis and Vaughn suited up for the West. The West won the game, 105-102, according to ESPN.

Vaughn finished with 14 points and five rebounds. Sports Illustrated described him as "one of the best pure scorers in the 2014 class" with tremendous athletic ability and shooting range. He tied for a game-high with two 3-pointers, while also showing his athleticism by attacking the rim.

Jones led all players with 10 assists. His three-pointer with 1:46 remaining gave the East a 99-98 lead, and he hit a tough runner over his future Duke teammate Jahlil Okafor to give the East another lead with less than a minute to play. SB Nation described Jones as a player with "incredible control with the ball, using his speed and balance to draw defenders and open scoring lanes for others."
