Donovan Mitchell dropped a game-high 30 points and earned MVP honors in Friday night's Jordan Classic regional game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Louisville-bound guard connected on 12 of 19 shots, including 3 of 7 from beyond the arc, and registered a game-high 9 steals as well.
As is the case most times he takes the court, Mitchell was stylish in the process of putting up his large numbers.

It appears the rest of the country is starting to catch on to what we've all suspected for about a year now.
Donovan Mitchell just put up 30 in the Jordan regional game, won the MVP & looked like a guy who can star as a freshman at Louisville.— Luke Winn (@lukewinn) April 17, 2015
I'd have a hard time finding 15 better prospects in the senior class than Louisville-bound Donovan Mitchell. #jordanbrand— Rob Harrington (@Rob_Harrington) April 17, 2015
Louisville-bound Donovan Mitchell with a move that could make #SCtop10 but won't. Spin move around a defender and then a nasty 1-handed dunk— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 17, 2015
This guy is going to make the summer a whole lot of fun.
