Seven-Footer May Play This Year For Tech

Liam McMorrow, a 7-foot center from Toronto, has transferred to Tennessee Tech from Marquette University and will join the Golden Eagle men’s basketball squad immediately, according to coach Mike Sutton. McMorrow sat out the 2008-09 season as a redshirt transfer student at Marquette after his freshman season at Canada’s Durham College. He was on the sidelines again last year due to health reasons and because he didn’t play at Marquette in 2009-10, Tech will request an exception waiver from the NCAA to allow McMorrow to be eligible immediately this season for the Golden Eagles.
