The game will follow its traditional double header format, with the girls tipping off first. The final rosters will be announced on January 24 at 3PM. They will be selected by a combination of coaches and media.

Michigan And The McDonald’s All-American Game

Here are the previous athletes from Michigan chosen to play in the McDonald’s All-American Game:

Tiffanie Shives (2005, Lansing Christian)

Destiny Williams (2009, Benton Harbor)

Madison Williams (2010, Detroit Country Day)
