Men's Basketball Team Meets President Clinton After Speech at Gaston Hall

April 30, 2014

WASHINGTON - Members of the Georgetown University men's basketball team had the chance to meet former United States President Bill Clinton (SFS'68) after a speech on campus Wednesday morning.

Policymaking today tends to be "dimly understood, often distrusted and disconnected from the consequences of the policy being implemented," Clinton said during his speech at Georgetown. The 42nd president of the United States, who delivered the second of his Clinton Lectures at Georgetown talks, said he observed this "most intensely" in regard to the Affordable Care Act.

Members of the team had the chance to meet and take photos with Clinton after his speech.

"He's my favorite president and he really understood the economy," senior forward Nate Lubick (Southborough, Mass./St. Marks). "It's not every day that you can say that you had a chance to meet a president and it's pretty cool to know that you walked the same campus as a United States President."

Clinton also welcomed his wife, former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, to her seat in the university's historic Gaston Hall

"It was an amazing experience to hear him speak and then to meet him," junior guard Jabril Trawick (Philadelphia, Pa./Abington Friends) said. "It's one of the things that really makes Georgetown special."
