It is a great accomplishment to get "nominated" for this game but there is a long way to go before securing a spot on the team. Paige will most definitely be selected to play in this game as the #1 player in the class. Mir stands a very good chance to be among the to 24 selected because she is ranked composite 16th in the class depending on the rating services. Paith is a long shot to make this game because she is ranked well outside the top 50 composite.

6. Caitlin Clark
7. Sarah Andrews
8. Hannah Gusters
9. Maddie Scherr
10. Kylee Watson
11. Sydney Parrish

21. Tehina Paopao
22. Madeline Westbeld
23. Kateri Poole
24. Deja Kelly
25. Angela Dugalic
One other note regarding Aaliyah Edwards since she was mentioned in Carl's tweet. She is not eligible to play in MCDonalds AA game but there is an outside chance she might be invited to play in the Jordan brand classic because that all star game has included Canadian players (boys) since 2013.

So Oregon has a pretty good chance of having all five recruits in this game? Has that ever happened before?
Yes it has.

Tennessee in 2008 and 2003 had 5

Baylor had 4 in 2013, Tennessee had 4 in 2017, and California had 4 in 2009.

UCONN had 4 (almost 5 - Goring) in in the inaugural McD's Girls game in 2002.

Prior to McD's - UCONN had 5 (TASSK) in the WBCA AA Game in 1998.

Of ND's Class of 2020, three of them are listed here (Campbell, Marshall and Westbeld in descending order) and all of three of them "made" the semi-final round, along with combo guard Alasia Hayes. Can't see Nat Marshall playing due to her surgery a week or two ago.

Of ND's recruits, 6'2" Maddy Westbeld is having a very strong year, with Fairmont HS currently ranked #2 in Ohio (thanks, Baba) and Maddy averaging:
- Points Per Game: 23.7
- Rebounds Per Game: 12.3
- Assists Per Game: 3.8
- Steals Per Game: 2.8

Campbell plays in a much smaller division in Pa. than Westbeld does in Ohio, but she just became the Blair County all-time scorer with 2,551 points.

While both bring a lot to the court, ND can use the long-range shooting Campbell and Westbeld excel at.

In 2008, Rutgers had all five of their recruits in the game.

April Sykes, Nikki Speed, and Chelsey Lee all finished their careers at Rutgers.
Jasmine Dixon, who transferred to UCLA after five games at Rutgers. (Became at least an All-American Honorable Mention then tore her Achilles.)
Brooklyn Pope, who transferred to Baylor after her freshmen season, also played in the game. (won a National Championship)

Son of a gun. I missed that one. Doh! Good catch.

Sometimes injured players still accept the honor of being named to the game and all the festivities that go along with it. I believe Gabby Williams was selected for the team but did not actually play in the game.

No, no, no. Those are just the top 25 ranked players. There are hundreds nominated. For example FL has 27 players nominated itself.


There are over 500 girl nominees. Texas has 90 nominees by itself. States have a lot of leeway in terms of how many players are nominated. Also there is a lot of politics, and some players don't even get considered because their coach/school forgot to enter their name.

Odyssey Sims Baylor is another injured player who accepted the honor of being named, and couldn’t play, but she still checked into the game.
