Five former McLennan basketball players will participate in the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments. For the men, Alex Mills (North Carolina Central), Aundre Jackson (Loyola Chicago), Shannon Bogues (Stephen F. Austin) and Kaelen Malone (Wichita State) are all members of NCAA-qualifying teams.
