McCrory commits to Seton Hall

It was quite a weekend for KIMA center Eugene McCrory, who now knows where he plans to play college basketball.

McCrory, a 6-foot-8 senior, scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a 65-63 victory over Progressive Christian Saturday. While McCrory has been putting up double-doubles all season, this was a timely performance, with Seton Hall assistant Scott Adubato in attendance.

After the game, Adubato invited McCrory to the school's New Jersey campus for an official visit on Sunday and an opportunity to watch the Pirates play DePaul.
So instead of driving to Hagerstown for a postseason all-star game media day, McCrory headed north on Interstate 95 Sunday morning. A few hours after the Pirates' 79-71 victory, he had accepted Seton Hall's scholarship offer.

"He went up there and watched the game at 12 o'clock and texted me at 4 and said he had verbally committed to Seton Hall," KIMA Coach Levet Brown said. "He just has to get the scores on the SAT or the ACT. He's been working hard."

Said McCrory: "I went up there and loved the school, so I made my verbal commitment."
McCrory, who transferred before the season from Paul VI Catholic, has been one of the Washington area's standouts this season. He is averaging 17.6 points and has helped the Hawks to a 22-5 record.

Seton Hall "saw him over the summer and thought he was overweight and wasn't getting up and down the floor," Brown said. "After they saw him, they said all that has changed. He's an undersized kid, but they want him. We'll see what happens with it."
