Paige Lyons (12) dribbles during a Dutchtown game.

Though the McDonald’s All-American Basketball Games have been called off for the second straight year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, local basketball was represented on the prestigious showcase’s list of nominees.

Both Dutchtown’s Paige Lyons and McDonough’s Janiah Alexander were nominated for the honor. Lyons has signed with East Carolina. Alexander is McDonough’s first NCAA Division I signee — she will play for Alabama A&M.
