SANTA ANA, Calif. -- The buzz throughout various media outlets this past week insinuated that former ESPNU No. 1 2012 recruit Shabazz Muhammad (Las Vegas/Bishop Gorman) wasn't particularly happy with Nerlens Noel (Everett, Mass./The Tilton School) vaulting over him in the rankings after Noel reclassified. If Muhammad's performance at the Nike Extravaganza was any indication of his frustration, there may be some truth to those preconceived rumors. Muhammad was a dominating force throughout the game as he went for 41 points in his team's 69-50 walloping of Whitney Young (Chicago).
