Next week is ‘MaCio Teague Week’ in Cincinnati, in honor of Teague, who won a national championship less than a week ago with the Baylor Bears.
Teague, who is from Cincinnati, Ohio, will be honored with a week of activities put on by his alma mater, Walnut Hills High School, and the Cincinnati Public Schools.
On Monday, Walnut Hills and the CPS are urging people to congratulate Teague on social media platforms. Then, on Tuesday, there will be a donation day for the MaCio Teague Outstanding Student Athlete Scholarship Award.
On Wednesday, the city of Cincinnati will official recognize April 14 at MaCio Teague Day.
On Thursday, Walnut Hills and the CPS are calling it ‘MaCio Teague Throwback Thursday,’ and they’re urging those that have Teague highlights or memories to share them on social media.
Finally, on Friday, Teague will throw out the first pitch at Great American Ballpark at the Cincinnati Reds host Cleveland.
Teague, a senior for Baylor, helped the Bears claim their first national title in men’s basketball when they beat Gonzaza on Monday night. Teague averaged 15.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists this season, after he averaged 13.9 points per game in 2-19-20 for the Bears.
Teague can return for another season at Baylor, thanks to the NCAA’s one-time eligibility waiver due to COVID-19. But, like fellow guards Jared Butler and Davion Mitchell, he could be mulling a potential jump to professional basketball.
