Botham on McGaughy: "Ciera was the best point guard in the state of Michigan coming out of high school. She has been able to really improve all aspects of her game at DMACC and now she'll come to us as an even better shooter and floor general. She is significantly stronger. Her quickness and playmaking skills are exceptional and she should have an immediate impact on our program."
