LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Indiana signee Troy Williams scored 21 points on 9-for-13 shooting and recorded four assists and five rebounds to lead the Black Team to a 124-113 win over the White Team at the Derby Festival Classic Friday night at Freedom Hall.
Williams knocked down a pair of 3-pointers, but also threw down several thunderous dunks, wowing a reported crowd of 10,205. The star swingman from the Virginia powerhouse Oak Hill Academy did all of that damage in just 18 minutes of action.
“It’s the 40th year, so it’s nice to go down in history getting this trophy,” Williams said. “It’s just a great feeling.”
Williams was one of five Indiana signees on the Black Team. Warren Central forward Devin Davis had 14 points on 7-for-8 shooting and recorded eight rebounds. Center Luke Fischer from Germantown (Wis.) High School had 12 points, six rebounds and three steals. Cathedral swingman Collin Hartman had seven points and four rebounds. He hit a 3-pointer but was 2-for-7 from the field. Guard Stanford Robinson had six points on 3-for-9 shooting but also had four assists.
Syracuse commitment Tyler Ennis added 20 points for the Black team and Hamilton Southeastern swingman Zak Irvin, Indiana’s Mr. Basketball and a Michigan signee, had 13 points. Jarrell Martin, a Louisiana State signee, and Kansas signee Connor Frankamp scored 20 points each for the White team.
