Greg Monroe at the McDonald's All-American Game

I didn't catch the McDonald's All-American game last night. Maybe someone else who did can comment. But it appears that future Hoya, and No. 1 high school player, Greg Monroe, laid an egg. This is what had to say about the game.

Greg Monroe, considered the nation's top player by recruiting sites and, had a tough game for the West, committing five turnovers and scoring one point after an 0-for-2 performance from the field. He had six rebounds.
Based upon Greg's performances in the big, televised games he's appeared in this season, I'm not expecting him to shine right away on the Hilltop. It seems that after this year's disappointing run in the tournament, next year will not provide any quick fixes.

I saw the game. Greg was fine. It was the game that was terrible. Typical McDonald's stuff--pampered head-cases blowing kisses to the crowd and attempting circus shot, after circus shot. Monroe barely touched the ball, because the guards were too busy showing off. I didn't see a single turnover from Greg. He missed the one 3 he attempted, but his form looked good. Not much else to say.
