A few highlight videos of McCrory. Scroll down and you'll see clips against PSA and Woodstock. Not saying they mean anything, just thought the opposition was interesting.

Something you might find interesting is that McCrory is the son of CT State Senator (and former D1 basketball player at the University of Hartford) Doug McCrory: http://www.senatedems.ct.gov/mccrory

We do not have a true PG on this team. Would love to get a pickup from Isaiah Wilson. It is so important to have a fundamental true PG. Keon is more of a combo guard, and his dribbling was all over the place at times last year but I have faith. Losing Woods in the offseason was our programs biggest lose, would have been very valuable in the rotation.

I don’t recall seeing him play off the ball in the 5+ games of his at Combine Academy that I watched.

He was a visitor at practice yesterday. I had a chat with Bergeron and asked him who the basketball looking spectator was and he gave me his name. He didn't say anything about us landing him, but he did rave about his abilities. Rave is probably understating how Tony felt about him. I don't know enough about Tony to know if he prone to hyperbole.

Welcome aboard, Dibaji, but we really need a big guy. Here’s his year at Cleveland State.

Was ranked 12th best player in Connecticut and 42nd best in New England his senior year.

Sounds like he's pretty versatile with a really long wingspan so the plan might be to use him alongside a traditional big like Tre or with Sy in a smaller lineup. Hopefully he can use the year off to get stronger and develop his skills a bit more. I think he was a big help in the Woodstock press so that is a good thing.

Wonder if his pops is footing the bill for this year since we don't have any open scholarships...
