Two of the five University of Louisville women's basketball signees have been named to the McDonald's All-American game. Myisha Hines-Allen and Mariya Moore were both on the East team on the rosters released on Wednesday afternoon.

University of Louisville women's basketball coach has his team on a 14-game winning streak after Tuesday's win at Rutgers.

But that's not the only reason for Walz to be smiling these days.

Two members of his highly-ranked five-player recruiting class that will be freshmen next season have been named McDonald's All-American. The rosters were released on Wednesday.

Myisha Hines-Allen, a 6-foot-1 wing from Montclair, N.J., and Mariya Moore, a 6-foot wing from Salesian, Calif., were named to the East team of the McDonald All-American game. The game is April 2 at the United Center in Chicago.

Hines-Allen is ranked as the No. 34 player in the top 100. She recently became the all-time leading scorer in Montclair High history with 1,523 points.

Moore is the reigning player of the year in the San Francisco area and having another banner season. She's ranked as the No. 43 player.

Moore had a rare quadruple-double - 21 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds and 10 steals - last week in a game against South Medford.

It's only the second time U of L has ever had a future player in the McDonald's All-American team. Sara Hammond and Bria Smith were both in the 2011 McDonald's game.
