Another night, another set of highlights for MoKan Elite standouts N'Faly Dante and Malik Hall at the Hardwood Classic in Lawrence.

But it wasn't just the two Kansas targets — Dante in the Class of 2020 and Hall in the Class of 2019 — who filled up the highlight reel on Friday night, which capped Day 2 of this year's event.

City Rocks, an AAU program out of Albany, N.Y., also did its part in that, with guard Andre Jackson bringing down the house — and a few current KU player celebrity judges — in the annual dunk contest. And shooting guard Joseph Girard III winning the 3-point contest for the second year in a row.

KUsports.com recruiting insider Matt Scott was at Sports Pavilion Lawrence again on Friday night and he captured a couple of in-game Hall and Dante highlights along with Mr. Jackson's most impressive displays during the high-energy dunk contest.

Here's a look...
