Kiddies, don't forget to catch Kevin Love and the rest of America's best Prep players in the McDonald's All America game tonight, on ESPN, at 8:00 eastern/5:00 Pacific. The West Team preview from Rivals.com:
The West is the favorite to repeat as winners of the McDonald's All-American. The team has a roster loaded with the top five prospects in the Rivals150. Don't be surprised to see the top point guard Derrick Rose and top shooting guard Eric Gordon team up in the backcourt like they did last July when the took the summer circuit by storm. Likely starters at forward are Michael Beasley and Kyle Singler, and Kevin Love is expected to start at center.
The West also has two other top-10 prospects in backcourt players Jerryd Bayless and James Harden. Steady point guard Jai Lucas is also at the West squad's disposal.
James Anderson and Taylor King provide support at the forward position. Blake Griffin and Cole Aldrich provide both power and length inside for the West.
East Preview (Once again from Rivals.com):
As one of only two top-10 prospects on the roster, O.J. Mayo is the clear leader of the East squad. It is a little more difficult to pin down an expected starting line up for the East, but the backcourt will likely feature Mayo and Austin Freeman. A front line of Donte Green, Patrick Patterson and Kosta Koufos makes sense.
Nick Calathes, Jonny Flynn, Nolan Smith and Chris Wright are guards who can both run the point and also put up big scoring numbers.
Corey Stokes provides a shooter with size for the East to match King of the West. J.J. Hickson and Gani Lawal are athletic and energetic interior players.
If you all have a chance to see Kevin Love, this game should be a blast.
