McClung finished with 20 points, five rebounds and five assists on Saturday in the Allen Iverson Roundball Classic at Souderton Area High School in the Philadelphia suburbs. He started and wore No. 4 for Team Honor, which was on the losing end of a 148-134 decision to Team Loyalty.
The kid from Southwest Virginia more than held his own while competing with, and against, All-Americans headed to such places as Kansas, UCLA and Villanova.
“Mac was phenomenal,” said Jai Manselle, co-founder of the Classic. “He really put on a show. One of the things about our game is that we set out to be the most competitive [prep] all-star game and that’s what I think the fans got. Not only competitive, but entertaining and Mac in particular showed out.
“There were a few moments where he had everybody in the gym on their feet.”
Just watched Mac Mcclung in AI combine and it’s no way he is only a 3 star recruit.. he was easily the best player there. No cap— Garland (@garlo300) April 21, 2018
After the event, Allen Iverson spoke to the group of players and got emotional while doing so.
Iverson is always gonna resonate with young people because he really comes off as a genuine guy who appreciates the younger generation. This wasn't a generic "thanks for showing up" speech. Nothing about him seems fake pic.twitter.com/F6cO3yF30C— Playoff Jae Crowder (@el_budget) April 22, 2018
As always, Iverson is the best.
Next stop for Mac McClung is the 2018 Nike DC Pro City “Kenner” League at Georgetown’s McDonough Gym, which today announced it will start on July 7th.
The league will run on weekends from July 7 to August 5. Put that on your calendars.— Nike DC Pro City (@KennerLeague) April 23, 2018
