Oak Hill Academy vs Montrose Christian (March 6)

ESPN2 is planning to show another high profile high-school game on March 6, at 7pm eastern (4pm pacific). The game will feature the "high school team" of the college-star-factory Oak Hill Academy visiting Montrose Christian of Bethesda (Maryland, not Israel).

The stars colliding in these game are two Villanova forwards, Isaiah Armwood and Mouphtaou Yarou, going up against Stephen Smith's crew, which is headlined by Keith Gallon who is planning to go to Oklahoma.

This is also a good way to scout future stars, so you can be the first to know in your sports bar or blog when people hear their names next year!

Classic High School games on ESPN Classic

There are two classic high-school basketball games scheduled to be shown on ESPN Classic in the next few days, so set up your VCRs and VCRs!

First up, tomorrow, Sunday February 22nd, at 11am eastern, you can watch a one-and-a-half hour edit of the classic 1954 game of Milan vs Muncie, a true Hoosiers story. That's right, the game is from 1954. Don't expect the footage to shine on your 50" HDTV, but you are watching living history!

Next up, a much more modern game, from 2002, LeBron James goes up against the Oak Hill Academy. This game will be shown on ESPN Classic at 1:30pm eastern time on March 6.

ESPN Classic has a live feed like ESPN and ESPN2, so there is no east/west-coast time like cable channels that offer "canned" shows.

McDonalds all-American selection show recap on ESPN2

Tonight, well actually, Thursday very early in the morning, ESPN2 will be showing a 30-minute recap of the 2009 McDonalds All-American selection show. The show will air (obviously tape-delayed) at 4:30am (Thursday) on ESPN2.

We do not have access to ESPNU, so we don't know if there is a longer special or a live special there. Sadly ESPN and Comcast continue their petty squabble and until they behave like grown-ups and FIX IT (to quote the guy from "SNL") we are boycotting ESPNU listings.
