One day after their first meeting of this regular season turned into a classic, Duke and North Carolina added to their collections of McDonald's All-Americans.
The 12-player teams announced Thursday for the March 30 McDonald's All-American Game in Chicago include Duke recruits Austin Rivers, Quinn Cook and Marshall Plumlee, brother of current Blue Devils Mason and Miles Plumlee. North Carolina signees P.J. Hairston and James McAdoo, the latter from Norfolk Christian, also were selected.
Other schools with multiple representatives in the game: Kentucky (four), Ohio State, Syracuse, Louisville (two each).
Those with one: Oklahoma State, Pitt, Memphis, Georgia, LSU, Texas, Indiana, Florida and Michigan State.
Carolina has six McDonald's All-Americans this season, seven before Larry Drew II's exit, Duke five.
Virginia Tech's last Mickey D's A-A was Dell Curry 25 years ago, and Hokies signee Dorian Finney-Smith of Portsmouth's Norcom was a finalist. Moreover, recruiting maven Dave Telep, a member of the McDonald's selection committee, tweeted that Finney-Smith belongs in the game.
Boo Williams, Finney-Smith's AAU coach and another committee member, said recently that he would be shocked were Finney-Smith bypassed.
But Virginia Tech recruits don't sell tickets or attract eyeballs to ESPN's prime-time telecast. Those from traditional powers do.
Here are the rosters for the game.
