Men's Basketball: Christian McCue Earns Post Season Honor from the Little East Conference

GORHAM, Maine –  Senior Christian McCue (Hampden, Maine/Hampden Academy) of the University of Southern Maine Huskies' men's basketball team has been selected to the 2017 All-Little East Conference second team.

            Christian is a fantastic leader and naturally places a huge amount of responsibility on his shoulders," noted veteran head coach Karl Henrikson.  "Nobody plays harder on each possession to try and help the team win.  He demonstrated a tremendous work ethic and played with intensity throughout the season."

            Transferring to Southern Maine from McGill University (Canada), McCue joined the Huskies in the 2016-2017 season.  McCue had a breakout season as a senior, averaging a team-leading 16.1 points per game while shooting 42.2 percent (127-for-301) from the field and a solid 35.2 percent (50-for-142) from three-point range, adding 1.3 assists and 1.7 rebounds per game.  Finishing seventh in the Little East Conference in points per game, McCue's 50 three-point field goals were sixth in the conference, while his 85.1 free throw percentage (114-for-134) was second.
