*** Top 2011 recruit Khem Birch will play in the Jordan Brand Classic in Charlotte, N.C. on Saturday night. The game will be aired
at 8 p.m. on ESPN2. Birch will be on the East all-star team and if he wears the same long-sleeved shirt that he donned in the McDonald’s All-American game, he will be easy to spot. This is Birch’s second all-star game after posting 15 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots in the McDonald’s All-America game two weeks ago.
