  • Coach McCall quote on McCrory's signing: “The one thing about Cairo is a competitor. Winning is important to Cairo, and it’s evident when you watch him play. He has an ability to get in the lane and is great on a straight-line drive with his ability to get in there and finish on contact. He takes a lot of pride defensively. He wants to guard the other team’s best player and we’re going to be able to versatile with him defensively. He’s a great rebounder and get the ball off the backboard and start the break. He’s going to make our team deeper.”5)
