Creek, Bull and McCoy Added to GW Men's Basketball Program

June 26, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's basketball has added transfers Maurice Creek, Domonique Bull and Ryan McCoy among its six newcomers to the program, Head Coach Mike Lonergan announced on Wednesday.
The trio of transfers will join incoming freshmen Nick Griffin, Miguel Cartagena and Skyler White as newcomers to the GW men's basketball program in 2013-14. All six players are slated to join the Colonials for training sessions on July 8.
Creek, who has enrolled in GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development, will be eligible to compete for the Colonials immediately after graduating from Indiana University this past May. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 7.2 points on 43 percent shooting, including 36 percent from three-point range, 2.0 rebounds and nearly 16 minutes over 54 career games with the Big Ten's Hoosiers, but was hampered by injuries during three of his four seasons from 2009-13.
During his debut season in 2009-10, Creek was among the highest scoring freshmen in the country, averaging 16.4 points through 12 games, including 31 points against No. 4 ranked Kentucky in December 2009, before succumbing to a season-ending injury. He also averaged 8.3 points through 18 games of the 2010-11 season, as well as 1.8 points in 24 games in 2012-13 as Indiana spent the entire season ranked in the top 10 and reached the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.
A native of Oxon Hill, Md., Creek earned Washington Post honorable mention All-Met honors as a sophomore at Oxon Hill High School in 2007 before playing his junior season at South Kent (Conn.) School and senior year at Hargrave Military Academy, where he was the among the nation's top shooting guards and a Top 100 prospect by Scout, Rivals and ESPN.
Bull, who played in eight games for Missouri as a freshman in 2012-13, will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out GW's 2013-14 season due to NCAA transfer rules. The 6-foot-4 guard from Worcester, Mass., joined the Tigers after a standout scholastic career at the Tilton School and Cushing Academy in his home state. Bull was a team captain and averaged 12.0 points, five rebounds and four assists as a senior at Tilton, helping the Rams to a 27-5 record and a trip to the New England Prep School Athletic Conference Class AA title game. As a junior, he helped Tilton to its fourth straight NEPSAC Class AA crown while earning honorable mention All-NEPSAC honors.
McCoy, a 6-foot-9 forward from Skillman, N.J., will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2013-14 season due to NCAA transfer rules. In two seasons at Manhattan, McCoy played in 63 games and averaged 1.3 points and 1.0 rebounds in just over nine minutes per game. He helped the Jaspers to 21 victories and a second round CIT appearance as a freshman in 2011-12, and a trip to the MAAC Championship title game as a sophomore this past season. As a senior at Montgomery High School, McCoy averaged a 14-point, 10.9-rebound double-double en route to All-Somerset County First Team and Star-Ledger All-Group IV Second Team honors.
