Dickson County High School senior Jequan Lewis is one of 814 players nominated for the 2013 McDonald’s All-American basketball games. Averaging over 21 points per game, Lewis is the leading scorer for the Cougars, who are currently tied for first place in District 10-AAA. He has committed to playing with Virginia Commonwealth University. The 24-player roster will be announced Feb. 14 live on ESPNU, which also will broadcast the all-star games live April 3 from Chicago’s United Center. The McDonald’s All American game has been played since 1978 with a girls game added in 2002. It also includes dunk, three-point shooting and skills competitions. Many of the greatest NBA players of the last 30 years have played in the game, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Dominique Wilkins, Patrick Ewing, Kobe Bryant and past MVP winners Shaquille O’Neal, Kevin Garnett, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Past dunk contest winners include LeBron James, Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony and future University of Tennessee star Candace Parker, the only girl to ever win the competition. The games benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities. Players are nominated by coaches, athletic directors, principals and members of a selection committee. Since the creation of the game, every NCAA men’s basketball championship team except one has had at least one McDonald’s All American on its roster. Lewis is one of 26 Tennessee players nominated while Texas leads the list with 80 nominees. Only one Tennessee player, Nina Davis of Memphis Central, is nominated for the girls’ team.
