HAWTHORNE, Calif. -- Event organizers Gerry Freitas and Lionel Benjamin did a nice job of corralling most of the top prospects in southern California for the inaugural clash between the 2011 and 2012 classes. Although there were some noticeable no-shows including Norman Powell (San Diego/Lincoln), Angelo Chol (San Diego/Hoover), and 2012 standout Grant Jerrett (La Verne/Lutheran), the talent pool was quite good.

After building a 25-point lead in the first half, the Class of 2011 had to hold on to eventually defeat their younger rivals 83-78. Jordan Daniels, a 5-8 point guard extraordinaire out of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Etiwanda and 6-5 Kevin Bailey, an ever-improving wing out of Fresno/Clovis West, were selected co-MVPs.
