West Chester Lakota West senior forward Amber Gray was named to the McDonald’s All-American team Tuesday night.

The announcement was broadcast live on ESPNU and Gray was interviewed during the 30-minute program.

Gray is the third Cincinnati-area girls’ player to be named to the McDonald’s All-American team. Former prep stars Mel Thomas (Mount Notre Dame and Connecticut) and Dee Davis (Princeton and Vanderbilt) were also selected in years past.

Gray is one of 20 players selected to play in the 2008 game which will be held March 26 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

The game will be televised live at 7 p.m. on ESNPU.

“It’s a huge honor to be selected,” Gray said. “…I can’t wait to get up there and play. It should be a lot of fun and a great experience.”

Gray, who has signed with Tennessee, has scored 1,845 points in her career at Lakota West.

“Amber has always been at the top of her class physically and athletically,” Lakota West coach Andy Fishman told the school Web site. “Being an All-American is a direct result not of her talent, but her work ethic and commitment to continuous improvement. Each year, she has added to her game by countless hours in the gym.”

She averages 19 points and over eight rebounds for the Firebirds (22-1). Lakota West is ranked No. 17 nationally by USA Today.

Lakota West plays Chaminade-Julienne in a Division I district final at Harrison at 1 p.m. Saturday.
