The annual McDonald's All American Game took place in Chicago Wednesday night, and the winner was ... Duke? 

The four Blue Devils recruits--co-MVP Jahlil Okafor, dunk champion Grayson Allen, skills competition winner Tyus Jones, and Justise Winslow, combined for more points, assists, and minutes than any other school's recruits. Here's the school-by-school box score from the game:

Jahlil Okafor's 17 points were the most by a Duke recruit since Rasheed Sulaimon had 18 in 2012. His eight made shots were the most since DeMarcus Nelson put in nine in 2004.

Tyus Jones' 10 assists match Bobby Hurley's 1989 total for most by a Duke player, and it's the seventh most assists by any player in the McDonald's game, regardless of school. Jones' 23 minutes played are the most by a future Blue Devil since Austin Rivers logged 25 in 2011. 

Next year's Duke team will have nine players (not including Jabari Parker, whose status is still up in the air) who combined for 86 McDonald's points, 26 rebounds, 18 assists and 161 minutes played in the game, all highs for a Duke team.
