Pitt's Brad Wanamaker and Gary McGhee not only appeared in the 2011 Reese's College All-Star Game, but they both had solid nights in defeat. The East fell to the West 113-108.McGhee was the biggest star of the duo, as he was the only player to tally a double-double on the East squad with ten points and a game-high 18 rebounds. He was also 5-5 from the field.
Wanamaker added 11 points on 5-7 shooting to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and a steal.
The game featured quite a few stars including Georgetown's Austin Freeman, Kansas State's Jacob Pullen, St. John's Dwight Hardy, Michigan State's Kalin Lucas, and Morehead State's Kenneth Faried. Freeman and Andrew Goudelock of the College of Charleston led all scorers with 21 points each.â†µ
While both players will have aspirations of playing in the NBA, getting drafted is still not a guarantee for either player. McGhee, an excellent defender, will need to improve his offensive post moves. Wanamaker is a capable all-around player, but does nothing spectacularly.
