Shaqquan Aaron And Quentin Snider Not Named McDonald's All-Americans

USA TODAY Sports

The list of the 2014 McDonald's All-American Teams has been revealed, and it's one which does not include U of L signees Shaqquan Aaron or Quentin Snider. While both have legitimate cases, it's Aaron who should feel especially snubbed this evening.

Before getting into that, here are the teams:

East:

Myles Turner - Trinity High School (TX), center 

Tyus Jones -  Apple Valley High School (MN), point guard (Duke)

James Blackmon, Jr. - Marion High School (IN), shooting guard (Indiana)

D'Angelo Russell - Monteverde Academy (FL), shooting guard (Ohio State)

Justin Jackson - Homeschool Christian Youth Association (TX), small forward(University of North Carolina)

Cliff Alexander - Curie High School (IL), power forward (Kansas)

Karl Towns  Jr.  - St. Joseph High School (NJ) power forward/center (Kentucky)

Romelo Trimble - Bishop O'Connell High School (MD),  point guard (Maryland)

Isaiah Whitehead - Abraham Lincoln High School (NY), shooting guard (Seton Hall)

Theo Pinson - Wesleyan Christian Academy (NC), small forward (University of North Carolina)

Justise Winslow - Saint John's High School (TX), small forward (Duke)

Kevon Looney - Milwaukee Hamilton High School (WI), power forward (UCLA)

West:

Jahlil Okafor - Whitney Young High School (IL), center (Duke)

Trey Lyles - Arsenal Technical High School (IN), power forward (Kentucky)

Stanley Johnson - Mater Dei High School (CA), small forward (Arizona)

Kelly Oubre - Findlay College Prep (NV), small forward (Kansas)

Tyler Ulis - Marian Catholic High School (IL), point guard (Kentucky)

Joel Berry - Lake Highland Prep (FL), point guard (University of North Carolina)

Emmanuel Mudiay - Prime Prep Academy (TX), point guard (Southern Methodist University)

Grayson Allen - Providence School of Jacksonville (FL), shooting guard (Duke)

Devin Booker - Moss Point High School (MS), shooting guard (Kentucky)

Rashad Vaughn - Findlay College Prep (NV),  shooting guard

Reid Travis - De La Salle High School (MN), power forward (Stanford)

Thomas Welsh - Loyola High School (CA), center (UCLA)

All right, now here's my beef with the exclusion of Aaron: Rainier Beach is currently ranked as the No. 2 high school basketball team in the country by MaxPreps and is No. 4 in the latest USA Today Super 25. Shaqquan Aaron is without question the best player on that team. He leads them in scoring and has produced three triple-doubles in his last four games. It should stand to reason, then, that Aaron is one of (at least) the 24 best high school basketball players in the country.

I'm not alone in this.

He will have his vengeance, in this life or the next.
