Announcing the 2010-11 ESPNHS
All-American Boys Basketball Team
Twenty-seven of the nation's best seniors and three special juniors highlight the 2011 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 every player finishes his season, which makes ESPNHS honors more reflective of players who made state championship runs. The teams are chosen after all-state teams around the country have been released.

Note: All selections based on high school accomplishment, not future college/pro potential, and are reflective of those that lead their teams to state championships. ESPNHS does not knowingly select fifth-year players, and those ineligible due to age or academics, as Mr. Basketball USA or to its various All-American teams.
