URBANDALE, Iowa -- Rosters for the 33rd McDonald's All-American game were announced last week. Of the 24 players selected, 13 play for one of the 70 nationally and regionally teams in the Week 13 National Prep Basketball poll released Monday morning.

This year's McDonald's All-American game will be played March 31 in Columbus, Ohio. It's home turf for honoree Jared Sullinger, a 6-foot-9 Ohio State recruit whose Columbus Northland squad is No. 1 in the country for ninth consecutive week.

No. 2 Findlay (Henderson, Nev.) is the only team in the nation with two players in this year's game. Uncommitted guard Cory Joseph and Texas-bound forward Tristan Thompson play for the defending Prep Poll champion Pilots.

Rounding out the list of McDonald's All-Americans who play for Top 25 teams are Harrison Barnes of No. 9 Ames (Iowa); Kyrie Irving (No. 10 Elizabeth, N.J., St. Patrick); Doron Lamb (No. 12 Mouth of Wilson, Va., Oak Hill); Patric Young (No. 19 Jacksonville, Fla., Providence)l Tobias Harris (No. 24 Dix Hills, N.Y., Half Hollow Hills West); and Ray McCallum Jr (No. 25 Beverly Hills, Mich., Detroit Country Day).

how does Winter Park stay so high after a loss this week? Montverde didn't play and drops? 4 others teams didn't play and they didn't move?

IMO those Jersey teams, Findlay and Oak Hill are all neck & neck. Just look at the outcomes between them (all 1 pt. games). I haven't seen that Northland team but I see they have 1 pt. wins over 2 of those teams, so I'm inclined to believe they're in that pack too. I see Yates & Goretti as being one small step ahead of that pack.

That Goretti team can play any style you throw at them. They ran with Yates, and overcame teams that tried to slow it down on them too. I've seen a lot of hoops in the NE and they impress me the most. I would like to see Yates face a similar test against a team that slows it down (i.e. one of those Jersey teams). I'm not sure they can be slowed down, but would like to see that theory tested. If they could survive such a test, to me it would leave no doubt as to who the #1 team in the country was.

How is Linn-Mar of Marion, Iowa not ranked in the midlands? They are currently second in the state to Ames, have a 20-1 record, and beat Minnetonka this season in Minnesota. They also feature several sure college players in Marcus Paige, Matt Bohannon, and Darius Stokes.
