McDonald’s All-American Game 2024 box score, results: Duke’s Cooper Flagg, Maryland’s Derik Queen lead East past West


The annual McDonald’s All-American Game offers a glimpse into the future of college basketball and the NBA.

Tuesday’s showdown between the best high school players in the country did not disappoint as the East completed a comeback win over the West, 88-86.

No. 1 prospect and Duke commit Cooper Flagg was this year’s headliner, but it was his Montverde Academy teammate Derik Queen who stole the show for the East. Queen, a Maryland commit, came up with a timely steal and a pair of clutch buckets late in the fourth quarter to take home co-MVP honors. He shared the award with Dylan Harper, a Rutgers commit who paced the West’s offense the entire night.

As always, this year’s McDonald’s All-American rosters were loaded with future high-major Division-I players. Kentucky led the way with three recruits, while Alabama, Duke, Indiana, North Carolina, and Rutgers all had two.
