A few years from now when University of Louisville fans look back at the 2008-09 basketball season, what they will remember most about the team was its defense, with the offense being sporadic at best.
The player who made the defense tick was Andre McGee who, despite his respiratory challenges, never seemed to tire of making life miserable for the opposition.
Great to learn that his defensive prowess has opened a new door. McGee has signed a contract with the Phoenix Hagen, a team that plays in one of Germany’s top leagues.
“I liked him right away as I saw him. He is a player with a lot of discipline. He is a real guard. A big reason for his signing was his strong defense. We spoke with a lot of his ex coaches and they all confirmed his strong defense,” stated coach Ingo Freyer.
McGee is about to teach the German players some lessons about playing defense.
