McAdoo, Hairston lead East in McDonald's game

James McAdoo scored 17 points and P.J. Hairston added 15 as the two North Carolina signees led the East to a 111-96 victory over the West in the McDonald's All-American game on Wednesday night at the United Center.

The game was played in front of 19,909 fans, the largest crowd of the All-Star game's 34-year history. It surpassed the 2003 game in Cleveland that featured LeBron James.

Marshall Plumlee, who will follow his brothers to Duke, scored on a baby hook, then after Michael Gilchrist made two free throws, McAdoo had a breakaway dunk to give the East a 93-84 lead.

McAdoo's uncle, Bob, also played at UNC and was a star in the NBA for 14 seasons.

Florida commit Brad Beal also added 17 points for the East.

Anthony Davis, who is committed to Kentucky, finished with 14 points and four blocked shots for the West.

Davis, who started getting much more attention from colleges after a growth spurt a year ago, played in high school at Perspectives, a charter school in Chicago.

Austin Rivers played in front of father Doc Rivers who was seated courtside. Rivers, who will also be at Duke in the fall, scored 14 points for the West.

Doc was a 1980 McDonald's All-American.

Wayne Blackshear played despite injuring his left shoulder in practice. The Louisville recruit and Chicago Public League star scored two points.
