Earlier today word came out from Anthony Davis, Jr. that he had been selected to participate in the McDonald’s All-American game, scheduled for March 30th in Chicago. Now the news is flowing out that his future teammates Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague have also been selected for the nation’s premier all-star showcase. It’ll be the first time since 2004, with Rajon Rondo, Joe Crawford and Randolph Morris, that Kentucky will have three players on the McDonald’s team. The official word will come next week, but it’s already making for an awfully good way to kick off a big weekend in the Bluegrass.
Congrats to the future Cats and, as always, Go Big Blue.
