Video: 2020 McDonald's Girls All Americans
Watch some of the top 24 top players in the country.
For the first time, the Toyota Center in Houston will host the McDonald's All American Game, including the 19th girls game which is slated for 5 p.m. on April 1.
The girls rosters were announced Thursday and 24 of the top 43 senior recruits were selected to the game, including MaxPreps preseason first-team All-Americans Paige Bueckers of Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.), Hamilton Heights Christian Academy 6-6 post Kamilla Cardosa, Dowling Catholic (West Des Moines, Iowa) 5-11 guard Caitlin Clark and St. Frances Academy (Baltimore) 6-3 forward Angel Reese.
Oregon will be the big beneficiaries from this class as five McDonald's All Americans have either signed or committed to the Ducks. Thirteen other colleges have received either signatures or commitments, with Connecticut (2) as the only other one that will receive multiple players.
Of the 24 girls, 17 states were represented, including four players from Maryland, three from Tennessee and two each from Washington and Texas.
The East won last year's game going away, 83-67 to close the gap to 11-7 in favor of the West. Jordan Horston, from Africentric Early College (Columbus, Ohio) was voted the game's MVP.
Unlike previous years, officials have yet to divide the teams into two teams and plan to do so in the next two weeks. The coaches were announced Thursday, Fred Sauro of Williamstown (W. Va.)
for the East and Karen Self of Seton Catholic (Chandler, Ariz.)
for the West.
The game will be broadcast live on ESPN2 at 5 p.m., followed by the boys game at 7 p.m. to be aired on ESPN.
