Four girls and one boy have a chance to play in HS hoops' biggest game

Five Rhode Islander high school basketball players have been nominated to play in the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Games that take place on April 1.

It’s no surprise to see St. Andrew’s represented on the list. Forward Myles Wilmoth – who’s headed to Butler University next fall to play for the Bulldogs – was the lone boy nominated from the Ocean State this year .

He’s joined by classmate Megan Bodziony on the girls side. Bodziony was a star for South Kingstown before transferring to St. Andrew’s.

Three La Salle players are also nominated - Kelly Gallagher, the Rams’ leading scorer at 12.4 points per game; sharpshooter Aria DiNobile, who’s hit 24 3-pointers this season and scores 10.5 points per game; and forward Christina Bacon, who’s averaging 8.5 points per game.

The final rosters of the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Games will be revealed Thursday, Jan. 23 on ESPN’s “The Jump.”

Only one Rhode Islander has ever played in the game. St. Andrew's guard Michael Carter Williams was named a McDonald's All-American in 2011 before going on to play college basketball at Syracuse, which led him to the NBA.
