Pair of UConn commits nominated for McDonald's All-American game

UConn commits Sadie Edwards and Gabby Williams were named as nominees to play in the McDonald's All-American Game which will be played on Apr. 2 at the United Center in Chicago.

UConn recruiting target A'ja Wilson was also nominated for the game.

It should be noted that this is merely the first stage in selecting the 24 boys' and 24 girls' players who will take part in the game. Nearly 1,000 high school players made the list of nominees.

UConn commits Courtney Ekmark is being home schooled and not playing high school basketball as a senior and Kia Nurse's team plays in the fall and the game features only players from the United States so neither of them made the list of nominees.

The list of players taking part in the McDonald's game will be announced on Jan. 29 begnning at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.

Edwards, a Meriden native, is the only female player with Connecticut ties named as a nominee.

Fairfield Prep's Paschal Chukwu, Bunnell's Isaac Vann, Farmington's Obi Momah, East Hartford's Kahari Baneaufort and the St. Thomas More duo of Cane Broome and Eric Pascall were nominated for the men's game.
