The Red team, led by Jesse Perry’s 20 points and the shooting of Brendon Lavender, beats the Blue team 67-54. Lavender made 4 of 6 3-point shots.
Freshman post Sidiki Johnson had a team-high 18 points for the Blue. Freshman guard Nick Johnson, following his victory in the dunk contest, scored 17 points and made 3 of 4 shots from behind the arc.
“Nick can do a lot of things,” said coach Sean Miller.
“You can see from the dunk contest that very few kids have his athletic talent. And he’s also a very hard worker. First of all, getting him to understand our defense and getting him to real help on defense is something I think he can do. And we’ll work hard in the next couple of weeks to prepare him to do that.
“He’s going to be a really big part of what we’re doing, not just in the future, but this year.”
