For the second time in four years, Colorado will send two basketball players to the McDonald’s All-American game.

Lauren Betts of Grandview High School and Raegan Beers of Valor Christian have been selected to compete in the 2022 edition of the annual event featuring the nation’s top 24 senior basketball players. It will be played on March 29 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

Both senior post players are ranked in the top 10 of the HoopGurlz Class of 2022 recruiting rankings on ESPN.com, with 6-foot-7 Betts the highest-rated senior in the nation and the 6-3 Beers coming in at No. 1. ten.

Betts, who signed a letter of intent to play for Stanford next fall, is averaging 14.0 points, 10.1 rebounds and 3.6 blocks per game for second-place Wolves this season. She has 285 career blocked shots in addition to career totals of 1,242 points and 810 rebounds.

Beers, who committed to Oregon State, returned from a knee injury that took his junior season to average career highs in points (21.0), rebounds (14.0) and steals ( 2.9) per game for top-ranked Valor. Despite only playing two and a half seasons, she scored 1,189 points and grabbed 774 rebounds during her preseason career.

With selections from Betts and Beers, Colorado now has five players named McDonald’s All-Americans since 2017. Grandview forward Michaela Onyenwere (UCLA) was selected in 2017, while Regis Jesuit forward Fran Belibi (Stanford) and Discovery Canyon after Ashten Prechtel (Stanford) were selected in 2019.

The McDonald’s All-American game airs at 4:30 p.m. on March 29 on ESPN2.
