Announcing the 2009-10 ESPNHS
All-American Boys Basketball Team

Twenty-five of the nation's very best seniors, and five special juniors, highlight the 2010 ESPNHS All-American Boys Basketball second team.

A 20-player first team has also been chosen. The editors of this squad have chosen All-American teams and compiled national rankings in numerous sports for over 20 years. Input from other Mr. Basketball USA panelists was also key in final player selections.

The format for the team calls for it to be selected after all high school teams have finished their seasons, which makes ESPNHS honors more reflective of players who made state championship runs. The teams also are chosen after nearly all of the numerous all-state teams around the country have been released.
