Minnesota’s “big three’’ of high school basketball were named Wednesday to play in McDonald’s All-American high school game in April.

Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones will play for the East team, while DeLaSalle’s Reid Travis and Rashad Vaughn, formerly of Robbinsdale Cooper, will play for the West team.

Jones, the 6-foot-1 point guard who led the Eagles to the Class 4A state championship last March, has committed to play at Duke.

Travis, a 6-foot-7 forward who helped lead the Islanders to the two consecutive Class 3A championships, has committed to play at Stanford.

Vaughn, a 6-foot-6 guard who transferred this school year to Findlay Prep of Henderson, Nev., is undecided and has plans to announce his college choice in the spring. He has narrowed his list to Kentucky, Kansas, Iowa State, North Carolina and UNLV.

Twenty-four senior boys and 24 girls nationwide were selected to play in games scheduled for April 2 in Chicago.

Ten others from Minnesota have previously been named McDonald’s All-Americans, starting with St. Louis Park’s Jim Petersen in 1980.

Braham’s Rebekah Dahlman, now at Vanderbilt, and Hopkins’ Nia Coffey, now at Northwestern, were named to play in the girls’ game last year.
