Muonelo Selected to Jordan All-American Team

Oklahoma State signee Obi Muonelo of Edmond (Santa Fa High School), Okla., has been selected for the 2006 Jordan All-American Team which will participate in the Jordan All-American Classic, presented by Foot Locker and Boost Mobile, at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, April 22nd. This year's event will feature the country's top high school seniors and be televised nationally once again on ESPN2 and ESPNU.

Muonelo, a 6-4, 210-pound shooting guard, came into the season as the co-Edmond Boys Player of the Year and has not disappointed. The slashing guard has demonstrated his incredible ability to get to the rim with ease all season, leading the Wolves in scoring with 19.,2 points per game. He led Santa Fe High School to last year's Class 6A championship with a tournament MVP performance.

This year's Jordan All-American Team also includes Demond Carter (Reserve, LA/Baylor), Sherron Collins (Chicago, IL/Kansas), Duke Crews (Hampton, VA/Tennessee), Kevin Durant (Rockville, MD/Texas), Wayne Ellington (Merion, PA/North Carolina), Paul Harris (Fitchburg, MA/Syracuse), Spencer Hawes (Seattle, WA/Washington), Mike Jones (Hopkins, SC/Syracuse), Curtis Kelly (New York, NY/Connecticut), Jonathan Kreft (Parkland, FL/Florida State), Tywon Lawson (Mouth of Wilson, VA/North Carolina), Vernon Macklin (Chatham, VA/Georgetown), Jon Scheyer (Northbrook, IL/Duke), DeShawn Sims (Detroit, MI/Michigan), Edgar Sosa (New York, NY/Louisville), DaJuan Summers (Owings Mills, MD/Georgetown), Brandan Wright (Brentwood, TN/North Carolina), Thaddeus Young (Memphis, TN/Georgia Tech), Brian Zoubek (Haddonfield, NJ/Duke). Greg Oden (Indianapolis, IN/Ohio State) was also selected to the Jordan All-American Team, but is unable to participate in the game.

"These All-Americans represent the elite talent in high school basketball," said Michael Jordan. "The game will once again be an incredible showcase of athleticism — I am looking forward to watching them in person this April at the Garden."

Recent Jordan All-Americans have included NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Andre Iguodala as well as current NCAA standouts JJ Redick (Duke), Dee Brown (Illinois), Hassan Adams (Arizona), LaMarcus Aldridge (Texas), Daniel Gibson (Texas), Rajon Rondo (Kentucky), Shannon Brown (Michigan State), Rudy Gay (Connecticut) and Justin Gray (Wake Forest).
