N’Faly Dante and his MOKAN Elite team took down fellow Kentucky target Jalen Green’s Team WhyNot squad in the Peach Jam final earlier this afternoon.
Dante put his team up with about five seconds remaining, but Jalen Green came right back and tied the game at the buzzer to send it into overtime.

Dante finished with 22 points and 18 rebounds and a Peach Jam MVP to go along with his championship, meanwhile Jalen Green put up 27 points, including the clutch basket to tie the game.
Three Kentucky Wildcats coaches were in attendance for this back-and-forth title game featuring two highly touted Kentucky prospects. John Calipari clearly wants him for next season, as he spent most of the last five days watching Dante.
Now that the Peach Jam has ended, will Kentucky be getting good news on Dante and his rumored re-classification? His recruitment seems to be becoming a Kentucky vs Oregon battle, though LSU is lurking, and Dante may even visit Tennessee before making a decision.
