For Macari Brooks and Jamee Crockett it was the final chapter in their high school careers. In the fall they will take their basketball talents to DePaul.
Brooks and Crockett helped lead the "Got Next" All-Stars to a 109-100 overtime victory over the "Got Now" All-Stars in the NeXt All-American Classic at the Sears Centre this afternoon.
Brooks finished with 14 points including one three-pointer. Crockett scored 11 points on five field goals.
Dorian Finney-Smith, a Virginia Tech commit, scored 16 to lead Team Got Next.
Illinois signee Nnanna Egwu led Team Got Now and all scorers with 20 points.
At the half, Crockett (9 points) and Brooks (6 points) had combined for 15 of their team's 36 points.
Team Got Next rallied back in the second half after trailing 49-36 at halftime. They managed to bring the game to a 95-95 tie to send the game into overtime where they dominated by a 14-5 margin.
"It was exciting," said Crockett. "At the end we came back and made it a game. It's pretty exciting with the top players in the country to compete against and have fun."

- The game was not televised on CBS College Sports today as expected. The promoters of the game lost a sponsorship and were unable to provide the TV production.
However, the game will be televised on Naperville Community Television at a later date.
- Brooks took second place in yesterday's three point shootout. Iowa commit Jarrod Uthoff took home the first place trophy.
