Sean McClung Had 26 First Half Points
The MA & NH High School Basketball Report was in New Hampshire last night to catch the Bishop Guertin/Merrimack game. The game featured many of the top players in New Hamphsire including BG seniors Sean McClung and Connor Green, Merrimack sophomore Dimitri Floras, as well as Merrimack freshman Eric Gendron. All four players are cream of the crop in New Hampshire high school basketball.
But this night was all about senior Sean McClung who dominated the game from the start. With Babson College present to see McClung perform, the 6'4" small forward did not disappoint. He played with high energy and intensity and with the purpose of winning. He was impressive and as good as we've seen him. McClung was on fire as he knocked down 6 of 7 three pointers in the first half, had two slashes from the wing for finishes, added one offensive put back and two free throws for a 26 point first half that propelled BG to a 44-24 lead over Merrimack at the break. He only played a bit of the third quarter and none of the fourth as this game was well in hand as BG opened up a 66-33 lead after three quarters before cruising to a 91-49 victory.
