McGusty, Wong Voted to ACC All-Tournament Second Team
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Two members of the University of Miami men’s basketball team garnered ACC All-Tournament Second Team distinction, as announced Sunday by the conference office.
Kameron McGusty and Isaiah Wong both received the recognition after helping the Hurricanes become the first No. 13 seed to make the quarterfinals. The only other schools with multiple honorees were tournament finalists Georgia Tech and Florida State.
A redshirt senior guard, McGusty averaged 17.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals in Miami’s three outings. The Katy, Texas, native shot 48.8 percent (21-of-43) from the floor in Greensboro, N.C.
McGusty poured in 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting in Miami’s 70-66 setback Thursday against fourth-seeded Georgia Tech, the eventual tournament champion. His 25 points marked the third-most by a Hurricane in ACC Tournament play, while his 10 made field goals matched the second-highest total.
A sophomore guard who earned Third Team All-ACC plaudits in the regular season, Wong tallied 17.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steal per game in the event. The Piscataway, N.J., native logged an 81.0 percent (17-of-21) mark from the free-throw line.
Wong scored 20 points in Miami’s 79-73 victory Tuesday over No. 12-seeded Pittsburgh and followed that with 20 more in the 67-64 upset of fifth-seeded Clemson the following day. He became the second Hurricane with consecutive 20-point outings in a single ACC Tournament, joining Shane Larkin, who did so en route to winning MVP honors when Miami won the crown in 2013.
McGusty and Wong are the sixth and seventh Miami players—seventh and eighth total honors—to garner ACC All-Tournament accolades. The last player to make the cut was Sheldon McClellan, who earned second-team status in 2016.
