Johnson, Shook, Boley selected for McDonald's All-American Game...Moore, Durr honored -- Tuesday CARDINAL COUPLE

Two UofL commits, E-Town's Boley will play in McDonald's All-American game

UofL signees Ciera Johnson and Kylee Elizabethtown, KY standout Erin Boley are three of the 24 girls that will play in the 15th. annual McDonald's All-American game March 30th in the United Center in Chicago.

Johnson will suit up for the East team, one of four players from Texas...including 6'9" center Nancy Mulkey...named to the roster. Johnson, a 6'5" post from Duncanville, TX will also be joined by Boley, a 6'2" forward headed to Notre Dame.

Shook, a 6'4" post from Mesa Ridge, CO. is on the West team and will play with Lauren Cox (Baylor) and Tori McCoy (Ohio State)...two girls who considered the Cards. 

Indiana sends two girls to the contest...Lindsey Corsaro, a do-everything guard out of Indianapolis Roncali...and Jackie Young, a deadly scorer from Princeton. Corsaro is headed to UK.

Five ACC commits (Shook, Johnson, Boley, Young (Notre Dame) and Leaonna Odom (Duke) were chosen for the annual all-star game. Stanford has three players in the contest (DiJonai Carrington, Nadia Fingall and Anna Wilson) as does Maryland ( Kaila Charles, Blair Watson and Destiny Slocum).

Johnson is the leading scorer for Duncanville (TX) High School...which is ranked #1 in the USA Super 25 Computer girls basketball rankings. Shook is the leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker in the history of Colorado girls high school hoops.  

All five commits from the Louisville 2016 were named as potentials for the contest but Bionca Dunham, Jazmine Jones and Sydney Zambrotta were not selected for the squad. 

Give me the five Louisville commits and Boley and I'd take on the rest of the two squads for the contest any day of the week...



Cardinal sophomore Mariya Moore and freshman Asia Durrhave been tearing it up on the court over the last couple of games. The ACC recognized them for that hard work by naming them the ACC Player and Freshman of the Week.  

The two were key essentials to last week's wins over Virginia and NC State. Moore scored the final four points in the win over NC State with some clutch free throw shooting and Durr's 19 points off the bench included five for five on threes when the Cards absolutely needed them.

One of coach Walz's primary objectives is to get his squad to the NCAA Tournament and make a run at the National Championship. No harm in firing that rocket up and creating some sparks in January...



  1. Cards now 17th in AP poll.

  2. Accolades on top of accolades. Hoping that this equates to success in the future for the Cards. Still excited. Go Cards. Congratulations Mariya and Asia.

  3. Congrats Mariya and Asia. Keep working hard. Poor Geno, only one McDonald's All American.

  4. If you were told before the 2016 recruiting class committed that Cards would have 2 of the 4 centers selected on the McDonalds All Amer team what would you think?

  5. Next year we could have 5 McDonalds All Americans on the team. That's nice but I never considered Sara and Bria All Americans even though they were. I think it can be misleading especially a team like Tenn who has 7 now and is struggling

    1. I don't quite understand that logic. If you're an all American, you're an all American. Like coaches have said and like coach Walz has said specifically, those high school accolades are nice, but it's about what you do at the next level. But in the case of Bria and Sara as well as the Tennessee former burger girls, they earned that status regardless whether or not they're playing particularly well at the moment.

    2. I agree with the previous poster - a McD All American designation is something that is earned in high school. No guarantees when you get to the next level.

      And there will be seven McD AAs next year, not five. Moore, Hines-Allen, Cole, Durr, Fuehrng, Johnson and Shook.

    3. Good input by both of you. Especially since you're both right. I stand corrected on my comments

  6. Napa valley the estimate of what while that might be and often but it was well actually section yes belong to no problem obviously be bill about uh yes Neu Serum Pro what pat Buchanan will hasn't looked what’s popping issues o elect I think what spoke of the more the researchers trying to figure out what times.

    1. What's that? You're a triangulating butthead that gave Pat Buchanan a blow job? You must be so proud. I bet your mom is so proud of you. She taught you everything you know. A blow job while your wearing depends? Try sticking your thumb up your butt and then sitting down real fast.
