In a coup for Hampton Roads, two high school players from the area were named as Most Valuable Players in the McDonald's All-America basketball games before a sold-out crowd of 19,909 in Chicago's United Center on Wednesday night.
James McAdoo of Norfolk Christian was a co-MVP of the boys game, and Elizabeth Williams of Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach was MVP of the girls game.
McAdoo, a nephew of NBA legend Bob McAdoo who has signed to play at North Carolina, scored 17 points, shot 8-of-12 and led the East to a 111-96 win over the West. McAdoo shared MVP honors with Kentucky-bound Mike Gilchrist.
Williams, who has signed to play for Duke, grabbed 11 rebounds and set a record for the girls game with 23 points. She helped the East win 78-66.
