McDonald's halftime

Deshaun Thomas has struggled shooting the ball in the first half of the McDonald's All-American game Wednesday at Ohio State.

Thomas, who started for the East squad, was 2 of 8 from the field, including 0 for 3 on three-pointers. He had a couple of shots blocked by the athletic West team.

He finished with four points.

He did have, though, a team-best five rebounds and three assists, including a nice baseball-style full-court pass for a layup by future Ohio State teammate Jared Sullinger.

The East leads the West 59-51.
