RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
Haven't seen him yet but I'm planning to go to the Arby's Classic tournament, Dec. 26 (Turesday). Gate City plays a team from Huntersville, NC at 7 PM. The teams that come from out of the area are usually pretty good so it might be a good match up.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I see in the Bristol paper this morning that Gate City's opponent, North Mecklenburg, won in 2014 and includes Vernon Maxwell's son and James Worthy's nephew.

I did not. Was told the place was "locked down" when I arrived about 5:30.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I got to see McClung in Gate City's final Arby's game yesterday. They beat a very good team to take 6th place. I'm not an expert like some of you, but I was impressed with his ball handling, shooting and leaping ability. A couple of impressive dunks and some very crafty getting thru the lane (and a lot of "traffic") to finish at the basket. My friend that went with me said he reminded him of Grayson Allen in his style of play. We both felt he would've been a good addition to our team.

McClung might end up wishing that he came to ETSU. In fact, it be a situation where we see him in a blue/gold uniform 2 years from now.

Why do you say that? Do you think he won't get any playing time at Georgetown?

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
Has he peaked?

Georgetown recruited him as a point guard, is that a role he can fill? Can he make the mental transition from shooting guard to point guard? Not sure the words point guard describe his play.

I wish him well and hope he is a gem for Georgetown. He might have actually fit better at Rutgers.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I hope he does well, but I believe that Georgetown plays pretty forward/center heavy game. And even though their starting point guard is a senior, they are currently 4 deep in that position with the next two in line being a freshman and sophomore. As a freshman, I am not sure he will get the playing time he expects, and he is making a massive jump in competition level.

I'm just not sure he is a great fit there.. And I think ETSU is a better basketball team right now with a playing style more suitable for his game. Who knows what will happen, to me it just looks like a situation where it is very possible he won't be happy and will be looking to transfer. That's not a criticism of his game.

Is Stephan Curry a point guard? I'm not trying to say McClung is another Curry.......but their games are a bit similar, except that McClung loves to go thrown down when he can. He's also a bit like Bo Hodges, in that he doesn't fit the mold of a particular standard prototype - in his case either solely a #1 or #2. I *do* think he's the kind of player that makes others around him better, and that's a *very* valuable commodity on the hardwood.

And remember, we *think* that some of the reason he selected Rutgers, then G'town, was for the law school angle. Probably easier to get into G'town law school if you were an undergraduate there instead of here. Just sayin'.

That said, etsubuc's point is not empty. It's also possible that G'town will adapt their team to what he can do - although in my memory they haven't deviated much from their standard m.o. (forward/center-heavy as etsubuc notes) in decades. And even if their RPI right now is 160, historically it's been much higher than that. (Not to mention that as the season moves on, ETSU's RPI will worsen, and G'town's will get better, merely from opponents' RPIs. Possibly more importantly.....he'll get to challenge himself against the best: the 'novas, etc. in the Big East. He'll be playing a game against Providence or Pitt when ETSU will be playing Savannah St., Troy St., or WCU. *IF* he has pro aspirations - and that's a considerable "if" (altho I'd bet big money he thinks about it and would love to have the chance), he may just get better recognition at G'town.

I'm sure he and his family weighed all this out - but the college athletics scene is replete with stories of misfits. Time will tell.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I'ts really hard to gauge the ability of a "star" player in our region because they're typically not competing against other players of similar ability. But when I watched McClung in the "Arby's Classic" he was playing against a good team and he more than held his own.

I'm not as basketball savvy as some of you but unless he gets home sick, girl friend crazy or hurt, he'll play at the Georgetown level IMO.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
If I had aspirations to be a lawyer, I'd stay at Georgetown and get that degree, whether I played much or not. That degree looks awfully fine on a law school application, and being so close to the center of government can't hurt.

I hope he understands that the 50 years post-college are more important than the four years in college.

Thought all that had been lost or driven to the unmentionable folder due to the rise of snowflake and cupcake higher education.
