12/29/23 Basketball: McDonell Macks 55, Athens 50

In the finale of the 2nd Annual Denny Laramy Holiday Classic, the Macks (6-2, 3-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) started a little slow offensively, as the Bluejays (4-5, 2-3 Marawood - North Conference), came out of the gate firing, pushing out to an eight-point advantage and carrying a four-point lead into the locker room.

After the break the Macks tightened up defensively and eventually the offense found some rhythm as well, as McDonell battled back to take the lead. In the final minutes some key defensive stops sealed the win, as the Macks finished 2-0 at the tournament and gave Coach Adam Schilling a victory on his birthday.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Sophomore forward Karson Galvez absolutely caught fire from long range in the second half, knocking down five of his game-high six threes and tallying 17 of a career-high 26 points.
