Duke Gets Another All-American

McDonald's All-American Carlos Boozer has decided to attend Duke University.

Boozer, a 6-foot-9 forward from Juneau, Alaska, made his announcement before taking the floor at the Palace for Saturday's Magic Roundball Charity Classic, an all-star game featuring blue-chip athletes from around the country.

"It's a great situation for me to go in there, have a good time and play for a great coach and for a great team that has a chance to win a national championship," Boozer said.

Boozer averaged 30 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks this season at Juneau-Douglas High School and led his team to its second consecutive state championship. He also was voted Alaska's player of the year.

Boozer had narrowed his choices to Duke, UCLA and St. John's before making his final decision.
