St. John’s girls’ basketball senior guard Azzi Fudd was named to the McDonald’s All-American roster on Tuesday. Paul VI senior Trevor Keels was named to the boys’ roster.
Fudd is arguably the best girls’ basketball player in the nation. The University of Connecticut commit is ranked the top player in the District of Columbia and the country by ESPN.
Fudd has made a name for herself with her scoring prowess and elite skillset. During Fudd’s sophomore year, she averaged 26.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while being named the 2018-2019 Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year. In that same season, Fudd helped the Cadets win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title and reach the GEICO National Championship where they lost to New Hope.
Fudd suffered a setback in April of 2019 when she tore her right ACL and MCL. Fudd returned for the last 19 games of the 2019-20 season and averaged 19 points per game.
Keels’ 6-foot-5, 210-pound frame has made him one of the best scoring guards in the entire country. Keels, a five-star, is ranked the best player in Virginia, the second best shooting guard and the 16th best player in the nation by 247Sports. Keels is currently undecided, but he is considering schools like Duke, Virginia and Villanova.
This is the second straight year Paul VI had a player named a McDonald’s All-American. Duke guard Jeremy Roach was named to the roster last year.
The McDonald’s All-American game will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the athletes will be honored virtually.
