A pair of Bi-City athletes were left off the McDonald's All-American Game rosters, but nearby Greenville High's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a Georgia commitment, was named to the East Team.

Russell County's Rodney Cooper and Harris County's LaMichael Fanning also were among several hundred nominees. The rosters were announced at about 5 p.m. on ESPNU.

The annual all-star game will be played March 30 at the United Center in Chicago and will be broadcast on ESPN.

Here are the full rosters...
