Holiday and Lee Named 2008 McDonald All-Americans

By Bruin Basketball Report

Two members from UCLA's 2008 elite freshmen class, Jrue Holiday and Malcolm Lee, have been named to the McDonald's All-American team.

Jrue Holiday, a silky smooth 6'3 guard from Campbell Hall HS, is averaging 25.8 points on 60% field goal shooting, and hands out 6.9 assists per game. He also averages 11.5 rebounds, tops on the Vikings team.

From John W. North HS in Riverside, Malcolm Lee is averaging 24.2 on 57% shooting, 3.3 assists, and 2.6 steals. The 6'4 165 lb guard leads the Huskies in rebounding with 7.7 caroms per game.

Last year, UCLA was represented on the McDonald's All-American team by center Kevin Love from Lake Oswego HS in Oregon.

The McDonald's All-American game will be held on March 26th at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. The game will be televised live on ESPN.

what the heck is Demar DeRozan thinking committing to $UC? ucla will be loaded but will be missing a true center in kluv who will most likely be in the nba. there's no new center coming in. I wonder who will be taking up that slack? dont tell me its gonna be LoMR!

LoMR is a senior so most like i would have to say that he isnt staying, but Love should stay one more year so that they can will another National Championship. Westbrook, you should stay so everything smooths out and u can get more of a look and teach these younger guys the real meaning of defense.
