The McDonald’s All American basketball game which took place this past Wednesday was an outstanding display of the up and coming talent in the sport of basketball. The rosters for both the East and West teams were stacked with players signed to play at a number of the best division I schools. Kentucky has 3 commits on the roster, while Duke and UCLA have 2 each. Only 6 of the players are undecided as to where they will continue to play next year.

While college basketball fans are mesmerized by March Madness, future college stars stole the spotlight at the McDoland’s All American game. Several of these high school seniors played exceptionally well.

Possibly the top performer of the night, an undecided athlete as to where he’ll play in college, Mohamed Bamba, who is the country’s No. 5 prospect contributed 17 points, and four blocks for the East team. Along with Mohamed, Wendell Carter jr., who’s the nation’s No. 3 prospect racked up 10 points, shooting 5 of 6. He also added five rebounds, three assists and one block for the East.

The West top performers included Troy Brown jr., an Oregon commit, who shot 5 of 9 for 12 points. He grabbed 7 rebounds, and two steals. Along with Brown, Jaylen Hands, a UCLA commit accumulated 14 points, three assists and two steals.

All in all this was a game to watch, and provided viewers with a preview of next year’s college stars.
