Kansas’ Jalen Wilson scored a game-high 18 points and grabbed six rebounds in Team One’s 97-81 victory over Team Two on Monday at the NBA G League Elite Camp for NBA and G League prospects at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

Wilson, a 6-foot-8 redshirt junior-to-be forward from Denton, Texas, who has entered his name in the NBA Draft with the option of returning to school, knocked down four three-pointers in six attempts. Overall he was 6-for-10 shooting. He dished three assists against no turnovers while starting and playing 18 minutes. LSU’s Darius Days scored 15 points and Michigan’s Eli Brooks 14 for the winning team.

Texas Tech’s Bryson Williams and Baylor’s James Akinjo had 14 points apiece for Team Two.

In the second game of the day, former KU power forward David McCormack scored nine points and grabbed three rebounds in Team Four’s 90-87 loss to Team Three.

McCormack, a 6-10 native of Norfolk, Virginia, who has decided to begin his pro career rather than play a super senior season at KU, hit 3 of 6 shots Monday. He was 3-of-4 from the free throw line with two steals, one assist and one turnover while starting and playing 18 minutes. The games consisted of two 20-minute halves.

Houston’s Marcus Sasser had 23 points for Team Four. UCLA’s Jules Bernard had 18 points to lead Team Three.

Former Texas Tech guard Kevin McCullar, who has narrowed his list of transfer possibilities to KU and Gonzaga, scored four points on 1-of-7 shooting for Team Four. He was 0-for-1 from three with seven rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes.

McCullar, like KU’s Wilson, is in the process of deciding whether to keep his name in the NBA Draft pool or continue in college basketball.

The action continues at G League Elite Camp Tuesday. Some players from the G League Elite Camp are expected to be invited to the NBA Combine, which starts Wednesday in Chicago.

KU’s Christian Braun and Ochai Agbaji will participate in drills and scrimmage games at the combine.
