The schedule for the 24th Annual McDonald's Shootout has been released by event organizer Jim O'Boye. However, there is one possible change affecting four teams - Rolling Meadows, Marian Catholic, Fenwick and Vernon Hills.


Rolling Meadows and Marian are playing in the Montini Christmas Tournament. If they don't meet during that tournament, they will play each other at the McDonald's Shootout on Monday, January 20. That would leave Fenwick and Vernon Hills to play each other.


According to O'Boye, this is the first time he has asked schools to make a change after the schedule was released.


The shootout begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, January 17 with Warren facing St. Ignatius doing battle. St. Ignatius is one of only two schools to play in all 24 events. The final game on Friday features Andrews and Northern Kentucky signee Molly Franson taking on Gabrielle Rush and Hinsdale Central.


Saturday's slate of eight games begins at 9 a.m. Two of the top attractions will see highly touted 6-foot-4 sophomore Tori McCoy of (Champaign) St. Thomas More facing Geneva and by 6-foot senior swimgman Sidney Santos at 3 p.m, and Prospect, led by juniors Catherine Sherwood and Taylor Will, going up against Wheaton Warrenville South and DePaul signee Meghan Waldron at 6 p.m.


Monday's schedule has eight more games tipping off at 9 a.m. with host Willowbrook playing Providence. Batavia, led by senior Liza Fruendt, meets Joliet Catholic with 6-foot senior Jasmine Lumpkin (Michigan State) and sophomore Nicole Ekhomu at 1:30 p.m.


Other games Monday feature Bolingbrook and Montini at 4:30 p.m., and Neuqua Valley facing Trinity at 7:30 p.m.


All games are played at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park. Tickets for each day are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for seniors. A ticket is good for all games that day.


Here is the schedule for the three-day event:
