Manchester coach Danny Byrne is on record as being proud of the club's recruitment record this season. The club found dominating big man Willie Clayton playing in Northern Cyprus and Mike McCall, a key player in last weekend's 75-73 win over champions Leicester, is another scoop for the Giants.
"Mike's our point guard and was another one that had gone unlooked-at," said Byrne. "He played a couple of good seasons in the NBA D-League for the Iowa Cyclones and we knew what quality he was going to bring for us."
McCall, who has also played in Ecuador, is averaging 15.6 points per game for the Giants this season. "He’s had some massive games," said Byrne. "Willie got all the plaudits against Leicester but [McCall] hit two massive threes down the stretch."
