The finals rosters and team designations have been set for the Jordan Brand Classic on April 15 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., officials said.

In all, 21 players were selected with Duke signee and No. 1 overall player Harry Giles selected but unable to play because of a knee injury.

Four Kentucky signees are in the game, with two on each team. Malik Monk and Wenyen Gabriel will play for the West team with Bam Adebayo and De’Aaron Fox suiting up for the East. Future Michigan State teammates Cassius Winston and Miles Bridges are both on the East while future Duke teammates Frank Jackson and Jayson Tatum will be on opposite sides (Jackson is on the West and Tatum is on the East).

Shamorie Ponds from Thomas Jefferson figures to have the homecourt advantage, playing in his hometown of Brooklyn. He recently committed to St. John’s.
