Local flavor on McDonald's rosters

The Philadelphia area is indeed a hotbed for basketball talent. How else can you explain three players with local ties being named to the 2009 McDonald's All-American high school teams? Roman Catholic senior point guard Maalik Wayns will participated in the boys' all-star game. Cardinal O'Hara senior center Stephanie Holzer and Pittsburgh Schenley senior forward Markel Walker will play in the girls' all-star game. Walker, who is a Philadelphia native, transferred from University City to Schenley after her sophomore year. The all-star games will be played on April 1 at the BankUnited Center in Miami. -- Keith Pompey Here's a glimpse at the McDonald's All-American game rosters: Boys
