Future Hoyas' #3 Mikael Hopkins and #23 Greg Whittington speak with media after Capital Classic game
Hoyanation and friends it has been a minute. First and foremost I would like to the founder of the Capital Classic Bob Geoghan and Five-Star Camp founder, Howard Garfinkel.
The Capital Classic is the longest-running high school basketball All-Star game in the United States. After its early success putting the top players in the Washington, DC area against the top players in the country, it spawned the McDonald’s All-American Game in 1978.
Since 1974, the Capital Classic has been a beacon in the Washington, DC community, showcasing some of the nation’s top high school basketball talent. The game has become a steppingstone for many college All-Americans, NBA All-Stars and Pro Basketball Hall of Fame recipients, such as Moses Malone, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Grant Hill, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.
For this year's Capital Classic the Georgetown Hoyas had two Hoya bound players Oakland Mill's Greg Whittington and DeMatha's Mikael Hopkins.
