Kentucky signee 7-foot-2 center Jared Carter scored 10 points and pulled down four rebounds as his Gold All-Star team beat the Black All Stars 136-125.

Onlookers said Carter handled himself pretty well but might need development to really become a factor in UK's offense.

"Scott played pretty well," said Scott Jenkins of Louisville. "He is certainly big and nimble for a guy his size."

Terrence Williams, 6-foot-6 forward who will attend Louisville, led all scorers with 32 points.

In 23 minutes of action, Uche Echefu, the highly sought-after forward by Kentucky, scored only 5 points on 2-7 FG shooting. However, the 6-foot-8 forward from Montrose Christian High School in Maryland, was impressive on the glass, nabbing 10 rebounds.

Echefu, visiting Kentucky today, was cool about his plans, I plan to make a decision by the end of the month," stated Echefu. "Of the schools left on my list, Kentucky is one of the best schools. On my visit, I want to see what the school is like and meet the players."

Echefu has said he would like to make his decision in the next three to four weeks.
