Last night, March 6th, the Gate City Blue Devils met up with the Graham G Men for a rematch in a Virginia State semifinal game. After some dispute over where Graham selected to play, the Blue Devils and their enormous fan base left Tazewell Middle School with nothing but smiles.Virginia’s most famous athlete and maybe just overall favorite person Mac McClung dropped 42 points in a 70-59 win.
Overtime posted an amazing video of McClung’s game which you can find by clicking Here
Earlier this year McClung broke Allen Iverson’s single season scoring record and is just 18 points away from breaking the Virginia State record for most points scored in a high school career. The record is currently held by CalebTanner from Floyd County, a current player of The Radford U Highlanders. (who just punched their ticket into the NCAA tournament)
Mac McClung is no doubt the only taste of National fame that Southwest Virginia is going to get anytime soon. Not only did he put himself and Gate City on the map, he put Southwest Virginia and the entire Blue Ridge area on it as well. So everyone should sit back and enjoy the state final in Richmond this Friday ‘March 9th’ at 8 o’clock P.M.
Also, Blue Ridge Report is dying to get an interview with Mac before he leaves to go play for Patrick Ewing at Georgetown. So readers, make that happen.
