Highlights: Brunson Drops 56 In Loss

It's not often that someone outshines Jahlil Okafor, the nation's #1 player in the nation in 2014, but on Friday night, a sensational performance by 2015 point guard Jalen Brunson did just that. Check out some of the action here.

With Illinois head coach John Groce and Athletic Director Mike Thomas on hand, Jalen Brunson did not disappoint. A 56 point performance, marred only by a loss to Whitney Young on Friday night, brought all of Carver Arena to their feet to give the junior star a standing ovation as he exited the court.

Brunson's night is a little hard to describe with words, so check out these highlights of his record-setting night.
