Villanova Wildcats Class of 2015 commit Jalen Brunson netted the 2015 FIBA U19 Tournament MVP award for his successes in the event.

The Stevenson High School alum helped lift the United States of America over Croatia in the finals on Sunday afternoon, putting the bow on a dazzling performance throughout the entirety of the tourney.

Brunson scored 14 points, amassed five rebounds, seven assists and zero turnovers in the win on Sunday. This comes after a 30-point performance on Saturday against Greece in the semifinals.

The Lincolnshire, Illinois native also was named to the FIBA U19 World Championship All Tournament Team. Brunson joins Tyler Dorsey (Oregon, 2015), Harry Giles (Undeclared, 2016), Furkan Korkmaz (Turkey, 2016) and Marko Arapovic (Croatia).

The United States won the FIBA U19 Tournament in consecutive appearances for the first time since 1983.
