Could Jermaine Samuels make it three straight McDonald's All-Americans for Villanova Basketball?

The incoming wing was nominated yesterday.

Huuuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaaay! Great win last night. And really great job all of you with your cheering and jeering. Always a pleasure to be with you in the gamethread.

McDonald's All-American nominations went live yesterday, and Jermaine Samuels got a bid out of Massachusetts. Good for him! Curiously, Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree did not get one out of Pennsylvania and looking at the list, I'm more than perplexed. DCR has been having a monster senior season thus far - and while I'm sure those other kids are too - he's one of the most high-profile names in the state.

I'm confused.

And now, the "news."
