The clash of the "Big Three" lived up to the hype Saturday in Hampton, Va.

Apple Valley's Tyus Jones made a pair of late three-pointers and Rashad Vaughn of Cooper missed at the buzzer to give Howard Pulley an 84-83 overtime victory over Wisconsin Elite.

The highly touted AAU Nike circuit matchup was played in front of numerous big-name college coaches and dominated by the three top rising seniors in Minnesota high school basketball.

Jones, Vaughn and Reid Travis of DeLaSalle all had double-doubles: Jones scored 23 points, 10 assists. Vaughn 21 points, 10 rebounds. Travis 19 points, 10 rebounds.

Jarvis Johnson (15 points) and James Lawson (11 points) also scored double figures for Minneapolis-based Howard Pulley. Both play for defending 3A champion DeLaSalle during the high school season.

Here is a boxscore from the game.
