Devonte Graham set the tone for the Blue team

When the dust finally settled and Late Night in the Phog concluded on Saturday night, senior guard Devonte’ Graham scored a game-high 22 points for the Blue team, but it wasn’t enough to lead his squad to victory.

Graham, in 18 minutes of action, hit 7-of-12 field goals, 3-of-6 shots from behind the arc and was perfect (5-of-5) from the free-throw line. Graham, who also tallied two assists to no turnovers, looked absolutely sensation in Saturdays 20-minute scrimmage (running clock).

Lagerald Vick led the way for team Crimson
