The much-hyped McDonald’s All-American Game is set for Wednesday, and here’s how you can watch.
On Wednesday, 24 high school seniors will put their names in the spotlight with the McDonald’s All-American Game, one of the best ways to get a good look at the up-and-coming talent in the sport of basketball.
Wednesday will feature the 40th iteration of the game, which will be played at the United Center in Chicago. The girls game will begin at 5 p.m. ET, while the boys will get the spotlight at 7 p.m. The girls game will be broadcast by ESPN2 in the United States, while the flagship ESPN network will carry the boys game.
An online stream of both games will be available via WatchESPN, though it will be locked to those who don’t have login credentials for a television or satellite provider. Either way, both games will be simulcast with the television broadcast.
There are some huge names worth watching, starting with the literally huge DeAndre Ayton, who measured at 7 feet tall and 243 pounds. Michael Porter Jr., Mohamed Bamba, and Wendell Carter Jr. are some of the other big names on the boys roster.
A full look at the East and West rosters for the boys can be found right here, with full analysis and previews of Wednesday’s action.
In all, 24 players from 13 states were selected from the game. Kentucky has three commits on the roster, while Duke and UCLA have two commits on the roster each. Six of the players set to take part are undecided on where they’ll play ball at the next level.
On the women’s side, four players from Tennessee’s recruiting class will make it. All of Texas, Stanford, Louisville, Baylor, and UConn will have two All-Americans on the official roster.
Below is all you need to watch Wednesday’s action.
