Two area players were selected Thursday as nominees for the McDonalds All-American basketball games.
Kelsey McClure of Muskogee, a four-year starter at guard and a two-time All-Phoenix team selection, and two-time All-Phoenix boys MVP Porter guard Jacob Richardson were among 73 players from Oklahoma, the state with the second-most selections. At this point 800 players have been chosen nationally.
