Taipans Sign Import Torrey Craig
- Updated: August 6, 2014
The Cairns Taipans have announced the signing of 6 foot 6 import Torrey Craig.
This is Craig’s first professional job after he graduated from the University of South Carolina this year. As a senior Craig averaged 16.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg and 0.8 bpg.
His college career comes to an end after winning a bag of awards including Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year, All-Atlantic Sun for three straight years, Atlantic Sun Player Of The Year in 2012 and honorable mention All-American in 2012.
Craig is in the mold of former Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger. A great mid-range shooter and has a good outside shot. He can also take players off the dribble and is a solid rebounder for his position.
The Taipans roster is almost complete now and includes: Shaun Bruce, Mitch Young, Cam Gliddon, Cam Tragadh, Alex Loughton, Stephen Weigh, Matt Burston and Corey Maynard. The Taipans have one more import signing to come and is expected to be a PG.
