McDonald’s All-American Game Team Announced

It’s that time of year again!

A little over two hours ago, the McDonald’s All-American Game rosters were announced. Highlighting the group of 24 boys are Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger, Brandon Knight and a slew of other dudes who’ve been featured in SLAM Magazine’s PUNK section, as well as online in our PUNKS spot. One of the top high school end-of-season showcase games, this year’s McDonald’s Game will take the place in Columbus, Ohio, on March 31st.

Drum roll please! For the boys:

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com/madlib Michael NZ

    Fab Melo had no choice but to go to Syracuse.

  • Nawlins Realest.

    just one player from word of god??

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Haha aight thanks mike. I’m just a fan of Barton’s/Brewster’s. Along with South Kent. I wasn’t aware of the rule, either. Thanks.

  • willieg

    ryan harrow????

  • wakka

    damn duke and unc no white dudes this year?

  • http://slamonline.com niQ

    The West team looks retardedly strong.

  • nastierthanu2

    Best McDonald moment was Garnett getting the mojo and then hustlin down court only to get slammed on by Ron Mercer. What ever happened to Anthony Cade?

  • keegan

    woowww no ryan harrow is surprising…he’s great in all star game settings (and any other setting for that matter)

  • Young C

    Where is south philly’s finest dion waiters?

    For the girls, no Shoni Schimmel? She is ranked 8th in the country according to HoopGurlz. She is a consensus top 20 player in the nation. To those who want Ryan Harrow: HE IS NOT A CONSENSUS TOP PLAYER! Sure, some may have him at 20-25, but others think he is too much flash, and not strong enough.

  • Anthony R

    What about Austin Rivers? Are juniors eligible?

  • http://www.hoopsmanifesto.com Jeff Fox

    Nice – 2 Canadians on the “All-American” team!

  • Jmoney


  • baller23

    This McDonald all American Game will be weak this year!

  • swaggaon100

    Baller23 is trippin this years the west is taking it …and it’ll be one of the dopest games ever ….but not topping the year bron was in it

  • ctws

    It’s pretty rediculous that Shoni Schimmel is not on this team! #8 player in the country, and she can’t make a top 20 team? SLAM Magazine said she is the “most exciting player in the nation” this year…her style of play was made for games like this. Not sure what she needed to do, average 50 pts a game? I’m glad that the WBCA was smart enough to name her to their team…that game will be sooooo much better.

    I’ve watched Shoni Shimmel anialate opponents this year. She is a spectacular player. There isn’t a player in the state of Oregon that can even touch this kid. I would go out on a limb saying that most girls in the nation could not even hang with her. She is brilliant with her flair, passing, ball handling, assists and scoring from all over the floor. Shoni has an uncanning ability of seeing the whole floor when she plays, not to mention a true team player. Shoni is a true all american player.

  • david

    why is Franklin star schimel not even on the team. This native American star deserves it look at her stats. I’m from the same reservation as her.

  • ditchpig

    this game should be dope as hell
    west team has a clear size advantage

  • http://pobox48612 N8v

    Where is Shoni now?!!!! I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with this kid from Or. and im not even playing. just the other say she dropped 26 on Kentucky!!!. Wow this girl is ballin! Its great to see a Native on the court. mad props to the team and coaches that looked at her. also to her mom who has a huge impact on her inspiration. Good Luck Shoni!!! we are all behind you. God Bless
