CHICAGO (AP) -- Jahlil Okafor and Justin Jackson are ready for the rivalry on Tobacco road.

Okafor scored 17 points and had seven rebounds and Emmanuel Mudiay added 15 points as the West team defeated the East 105-102 in the boys McDonald’s All-American game on Wednesday night.

Jackson, who shared co-MVP honors with Okafor led the East with 23 points. The North Carolina commit was 11-of-14 shooting.

Apple Valley's Tyus Jones, who will attend Duke with Okafor, made a 3 with 1:46 left to get the East within 99-98 and his fadeaway baseline jumper gave the East a shortlived lead at 103-102 with 47.7, but his future Duke teammate gave the West the lead back for good with a dunk with 40 seconds left.

Jones finished up with seven points and 10 assists in 23 minutes. Former Cooper star Rashad Vaighn, who left Minnesota to play for Findlay Prep in Nevada and will go to UNLV, had 14 points and five rebounds in 15 minutes for the West.

DeLaSalle's Reid Travis, who will go to Stanford, had eight points and five rebounds in 14 minutes for the West.

Okafor and Jackson are expected to be key figures in the storied rivalry between Duke and North Carolina.

“I am definitely excited to get down to Durham and be part of the greatest college basketball rivalry,” Okafor said. “There has been a lot of trash talk between us and the recruits going to North Carolina. We’re all competitors so we’re all looking forward to it.”

Jackson has also bought already bought into the rivalry.

“We’re all good friends off the court so we all built good relationships off the court. We’re looking forward to getting to North Carolina, but once we got on the court that friendship kind of went out the window.”

Okafor and Jones will also be joined by All-American Grayson Allen. Jackson will team up with fellow All-Americans Theo Pinson Joel Berry II.

Indiana commit James Blackmon Jr. missed a 3 with 2.9 seconds left that would have tied the game for the East.

Vaughn made a jumper and then had a dunk to give the West an 82-74 lead midway through the half, but Jackson kept the East in the game, scoring seven points in a 2:10 span.

Mudiay, who will to play for Larry Brown next season at SMU, drove the lane for a dunk in the final seconds to close out the first half as the West cut the East lead to 51-50.
