Aminu selected as McDonald's All-American

Norcross senior Al-Farouq Aminu was selected to the 2008 McDonald's All-American East team on Tuesday night.

Aminu, a 6-foot-8 Wake Forest signee, is averaging a double-double with 22.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game for the two-time defending state champion and currently top-ranked Blue Devils.

Aminu is the second Blue Devil in as many years to be selected for the prestigious game.

Last year his teammate Gani Lawal played in the game in Louisville. Lawal now plays for Georgia Tech.

This year's game is set for 9:30 p.m. on March 26 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
