Matchups to watch in McDonald's AA game

March, 29, 2011
ESPN Recruiting previewed the key matchups for Wednesday night's McDonald's All-American Game, which tips off at 9 p.m. CT and can be seen on ESPN.

Here's what was written about the challenge West forward LeBryan Nash of Dallas Lincoln, the Powerade Jam Fest dunk champion, will face against the East's Chane Behanan of Bowling Green, Ky.
Behanan, a Louisville signee, is a bruising power forward. He is skilled enough to take the ball off the bounce from the wing into the paint to score. He is a solid athlete that generally out-efforts his opponent. He will try and bully Nash in the paint, however the Oklahoma State signee and Powerade Jam Fest winner is a skilled combo forward who can operate equally well on the perimeter or in the paint. Nash will try and take Behanan on the perimeter where he is less comfortable and either shoot from range or take him off the dribble.
