Demetris Nichols in Chicago

Demetris Nichols, has been named an EA SPORTS All-American and is playing in the EA SPORTS Roundball Classic on Monday (March 31) at the United Center in Chicago. Demetris is on our West team and will be playing alongside LeBron James against 11 high school stars from the East.

The EA SPORTS Roundball Classic is the oldest and one of the most prestigious high school All-American games in the country and a game that's helped launch the careers of Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, Vince Carter and many more of the game's biggest stars.

Having helped shape the hoops landscape for more than 15 years, EA SPORTS not only dominates the basketball video game market with its popular NBA LIVE, NCAA March Madness, and NBA Street franchises, but its immersion in the sport includes a sponsorship portfolio--including the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational, the EA SPORTS Roundball Classic, and the EA SPORTS All-Stars--that has helped establish the company as a leading force in the sport.

The game will be televised live by DirecTV and a one-hour special of the Roundball weekend will be syndicated nationally. WIXT is scheduled to run the special in Syracuse (4/19, 1 p.m.).
