OXFORD, OH - Miami University head mens basketball coach Charlie Coles announced today that Chris McHenry (Milwaukee, Wis./Bradley Tech HS) has committed to join the RedHawk program in 2010-11.
Chris McHenry comes to Miami with great credentials, Coles remarked. Im really excited about this young man, because he really fills a need for us in the fact that hes a very good outside shooter. On top of that, he can penetrate and pass, and I think in time he will be a pretty good defender as well.
McHenry, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound point guard, comes to Miami from Garden City Community College. At Garden City, he averaged 16.0 ppg through 31 games and earned first-team all-region honors. Knocking down nine 3-pointers against Hutchinson Community College on Jan. 18, McHenry set a school record for 3-pointers in a game. On the season, 80 of his 164 field goals were from long range.
Prior to Garden City, McHenry spent a season at Howard University where he averaged 9.6 ppg through 11 games, while making five starts for the Bison during his freshman campaign. Against Wyoming on Dec. 30, 2008, McHenry poured in a team-high 29 points. He also earned Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors during the first week of conference play while at Howard.
McHenry prepped at Bradley Tech High School and was regarded as one of the top players in the state of Wisconsin. During his senior campaign, he averaged 16.9 ppg while earning all-state distinction and first-team all-league honors.
