All-Time All-Star Game Records

Without any national all-star games played this year because of COVID-19, we thought this was a perfect time to look back at all the best individual performances over the past 50 plus years. Below are the individual records for all the established and long-running national all-star games. In order of creation they are: Roundball Classic (1965-2007), Kentucky Derby Festival Classic (1973-2017), Capital Classic (1974-current), McDonald’s All-American Game (1978-current), Jordan Brand Classic (2005-current) and Ballislife All-American Game (2011-current).

*Murphy also holds the all-time single-game scoring record for any national-based all-star game. Two nights after the Round Ball Classic, Murphy scored 62 points in the title game of the seventh annual Allentown Classic (also called the B’nai B’rith Schoolboy Classic), which pitted all-star teams from various regions along the Eastern seaboard. Murphy made 24-of-45 field goals and 14-of-16 free throws for New England in a 109-102 loss Eastern Pennsylvania. He scored 98 points in two games at the event (36 the day after the Roundball) that was held to raise funds for Cancer research.

**In 1979 and 1980, the Derby Festival Classic played two games, one at Freedom Hall in Louisville and the next night at Rupp Arena in Lexington. Earl Jones, a three-time high school All-American, blocked six shots in each game.
