NEW YORK -- With WNBA star Maya Moore in attendance, the nation's top high school girls basketball players took the court Friday for the Jordan Brand Classic at Barclays Center. The West team topped the East, 100-94, in the second year of the girls' game. The West's Joyner Holmes (16 points, 12 rebounds) and the East's Erin Boley (21 points, 15 rebounds) were named co-MVPs.
After the game, we asked the high school seniors to name the one thing they won't leave behind when they pack for college. Here's what they had to say:
Aaliyah Wilson (Arkansas): My shoes, specifically Jordans. It's my favorite shoe. I can play in Jordans, and rock them off the court.
Chassity Carter (Vanderbilt): Probably food. Food would be a big thing. I love food. I can't stay away from food. Cheez-Its. I love Cheez-Its.
Kaila Charles (Maryland): I'm not going that far from home, so if I leave something I can just go right down the street. It's like 15 minutes. But my mother's food. (She's going to make her cook some food and pre-package it so she can take it with her).
Destiny Slocum (Maryland): My basketball shoes, that's No. 1, but ... clothes. A bunch of basketball clothes. Because you can't have just one outfit. ... And my passion. That's the No. 1 thing you want to bring, the passion you had in high school. You want to bring it to college.
Crystal Dangerfield (Connecticut): Of course my phone, couple pairs of shoes. I'll probably end up bringing one of my game systems.
Sabrina Ionescu (Undecided): My good-luck headband (which she was wearing at the game).
Tori McCoy (Ohio State): Probably everything I have. Of course my phone. I couldn't leave that behind.
Jackie Young (Notre Dame): I'm a shoe person, so I'll probably bring some shoes.
Leaonna Odom (Duke): Shoes.
