The Gate City boys basketball team traveled to Washington, D.C., last weekend to take in a Georgetown basketball game and see former teammate Mac McClung play. While at the game, some of the boys met Vice President Mike Pence.
With his former teammates and a contingent of Blue Devils fans cheering him on, McClung scored a game-high 21 points for the Hoyas in the 73-69 loss to Butler. The former Gate City star, who averaged 17 points, five rebounds and 3.5 assists last week, was also named this week’s Big East Conference Freshman of the Week.
Also on the trip were Brennan McDonald and Jake Burns, who got their pictures made with basketball Hall of Famers Dekembe Mutumbo and Alonzo Mourning.
