Coffey Plays in McDonald’s All-American Game

The Hopkins star’s team lost 92-64.

Hopkins basketball star Nia Coffey put up two points and snagged six rebounds in Wednesday’s McDonald’s All-American Game, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Coffey played on the East team, which lost 92-64.

The McDonald’s All-American game is a prestigious tournament for rising stars. Coffey was among more than 800 high school seniors from 39 states and the District of Columbia who were nominated for the 2013 McDonald’s All American Boys and Girls Games.

Just 24 girls and 24 boys were selected for the final roster. Coffey and Braham High School’s Rebekah Dahlman were just the ninth and 10th Minnesotans to be named McDonald's All-Americans.

Coffey entered the game coming off a standout season. She was named the player of this year’s state championship game, chosen as Breakdown Sports USA’s No. 2 player in the state and honored with All State recognition. Coffey, who has earned four varsity letters in basketball, plans to play for Northwestern next year.
