The USA defeated the World team 92-80 last night in Portland (OR.) in that latest annual Nike Hoops Summit. The USA squad had three future Wildcats on the roster, while the World team had one Wildcat.

While a future Duke Blue Devil was named MVP of the contest (Austin Rivers had 2 points), four Kentucky Wildcat signees also managed to stand-out against some of the best talent the 2011 class has to offer.

While playing for the World Team, Kyle Wiltjer, who played as a Canadian, scored 12 points on 5 of 15 shooting. He made 2 of 6 three pointers in the game. The 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward played 23 minutes for the World team.

Team USA also has standout performances from forwards Anthony Davis and Michael Gilchrist.

Gilchrist had 16 points, five rebounds and five assists in the contest. The 6-foot-7 forward played 25 minutes. Gilchrist also added five blocks and a steal in the victory.

Not to be outdone, Anthony Davis scored 16 points of his own and ripped down 10 boards. A 6-foot-10 senior, Davis also had two blocks and a steal.

Point guard Marquis Teague played 22 minutes for the USA Team. He recorded six points, three assists and four rebounds.

At this point, this foursome is rated as the top recruiting class in the nation according to Scout.com and they are the only players with pledges to attend Kentucky next season.
