Like a game of chess, basketball is a contest involving strategy most often won by the competitor with the furriest mascot. Cheer for mascot dunks with today’s Groupon to the girls' and boys’ McDonald’s All American High School Basketball Games at the United Center on Wednesday, March 30. The girls' game tips at 6:30 p.m. with the boys' immediately after. Choose between the following ticket options:
- For $10, you get two 300-level tickets and parking (a $20 value).
- For $22, you get two 200-level tickets and parking (a $44 value).
Recently featured in Dime Magazine, the McDonald’s All American High School Basketball Games provide an all-star platform to showcase the country’s best high school boys’ and girls' basketball players and future professional stars. The girls' game kicks off the night of high-flying athleticism by pitting two star-studded rosters of future collegiate athletes against each other instead of against a squad of lifeless mannequins. Cheer as the East, led by Duke-committed Elizabeth Williams and future Tennessee Lady Volunteer Ariel Massengale, channel their inner-basketball jones to match hardwood handiness with the West’s roster, highlighted by Connecticut Huskies-to-be Brianna Banks and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis. After the girl's sweat swap, applaud as the nation’s best high school boys, including future Kentucky Wildcat Marquis Teague and future North Carolina Tar Heel James McAdoo, take the court to drain three pointers, attempt dunks from half court, and perfect Jesus Shuttlesworth impersonations. Stare in amazement as sharpshooting rosters full of future adults and Division-I dignitaries light up the scoreboard with the net-threading precision of scissors on a sleeping father-in-law’s toupee.
Marked by such famous past participants as LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, and other above-average basketball players, the McDonald’s All American High School Basketball Games have the ability to catapult current court celebrities to new levels of super stardom. Delight in the electrifying atmosphere of the United Center while memorizing players’ names in the program, critiquing the referees’ fashion choices, and rewarding jumbotron appearances with miniature energy-drink baths. As an added good-feeling-inducing bonus, all proceeds from the event will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.
