Destiny Slocum has already made plenty of history in her basketball career, winning a gold medal for Team USA, leading the Mountain View Mavericks to back-to-back state titles and setting nearly every school record along the way.
The Maryland-bound point guard will do it again Wednesday when she becomes the first person from Idaho to play in the McDonald’s All-American Game, the premier high school all-star basketball game in the nation.
Slocum and the other 23 girls selected from around the United States will tip off at the United Center in Chicago at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday on ESPNU (the boys game starts at 7 p.m. on ESPN). Slocum, ranked by ESPNW as the No. 7 prospect in the country, suits up for the West team.
She’s spent the past week in Chicago, and she took second in the girls 3-point contest Monday night.
