Ryan Pearson scored 36 points and grabbed 19 rebounds to land one of the Most Valuable Player awards handed out last night after the Jordan Brand Classic regional game held at Madison Square Garden.

"It was fun to play and I got a lot of chances to score around the basket," said Pearson, a Christ The King senior who has committed to George Mason.

Pearson also had a three-pointer but it was his nifty moves and putbacks that provided the bulk of his scoring in the 129-127 loss to the suburbs.

Pearson hit 15 of 19 from the floor and also had three blocks and three assists.

Marcus Morris was equally impressive for the winners, scoring 20 points and showing small forward skills in a 6-foot-9 body.

"It was a great week, it was nice to play with all these great players," Marcus said. "A chance to play in the Garden too was special. I had fun."

Morris is headed to Kansas (more later today on our interview with Marcus).

CTK teammate Erving Walker also had a big game, recording 20 points while Marcus' brother, Markieff, added 16 points.

The Suburban team led 60-57 at the half.
