Kansas University basketball signee Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds as his West high school all-star team edged the East, 105-102, in the 2014 McDonald’s All-American game on Wednesday night in the United Center.
Kelly Oubre Jr. had no say in the matter the first time his life was uprooted. The second time was not accompanied by such dramatic circumstances, and he did not question his father’s advice.
