In his rookie year, Darnell Jackson's highest point total with the Cavs in one game was 15, accomplished in the last game of the season when most of the regulars were sitting against Philadelphia. He topped that, albeit in a game against college players that didn't count for anything, when he helped Kansas alumni beat current Jayhawks during Bill Self's camp.

“Before we went out there, Aaron said, ‘We’ve got to go ahead and beat the young guys. The young guys shouldn’t beat the vets.’ We took that to heart. It should always be like that,” Cleveland Cavaliers forward Darnell Jackson said after scoring 17 points in the alumni’s 67-63 victory over KU’s current players.

It marked a Bill Self camp season sweep for the alumni, who a week ago prevailed, 67-52, in a game in which the first team to 65 points won.
