The McDonald’s All-American game is a heralded showcase for some of the top seniors in the country. The game was first played in 1978 in Philadelphia. It has a deep rooted tradition here in the state of Michigan. A prime example of Michigan’s presence in the game was in 1986 when it was held at Joe Louis Arena. That game featured the likes of local stars Terry Mills and Derrick Coleman. Mills had 20 points while Coleman finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds.
The 43rd annual McDonald’s All-American game will take place on April 1 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. There are 4 Michigan players that received nominations.
