LOUISVILLE, KY -- NC State signees T.J. Warren and Tyler Lewis put their talents on display last night in Kentucky, as they participated in the 2012 Derby Classic Festival.

NC State signees T.J. Warren and Tyler Lewis put their talents on display last night in Kentucky, as they participated in the 2012 Derby Classic Festival.

Warren, a 6-foot-8 wing who played this past season at Brewster (NH) Academy, led the White team to a 130-127 victory by scoring a game-high 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting from the field. Despite his efficient performance, Louisville commitment Terry Rozier took home the MVP award for the White team.

Lewis, a 5-foot-11 point guard from Mouth of Wilson (VA) Oak Hill, totaled 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field. He also tallied six assists running the show for the Black squad.

Playing with Lewis on the Black team was five-star forward Amile Jefferson, who is uncommitted and lists NC State among his leaders. Jefferson finished the game with 26 points on 11-of-18 shooting.

After the game, Jefferson addressed his recruitment.

"I'm still looking at Ohio Sate, N.C. State, Kentucky, Duke and Villanova," Jefferson told Josh Capers, who was covering the game for Pack Pride. "I think they are all great schools, but I'm still trying to decide."

We'll have more on this year's Derby Classic so stay tuned!
