Here's the skinny on Crouch:
- Transfers to GU from Victory Valley College in Southern California.
- Helped them to their first postseason playoff appearance in more than 20 years. The Rams won a first-round playoff game before ending the season at 19-15.
- The program recorded the most victories in a two-year span in school history with Crouch on the roster. Four teammates also earned full scholarships -- one to Division I UC-Riverside and three to NAIA schools.
- Crouch ranked 9th in the Foothill Conference scoring 12.5 ppg. Hit 46 three-pointers on the season. His career high at VVC was 31 points.
- Named to the Foothill Conference honorable mention team and to the all-tournament team at the Mesa College Holiday Tournament.
- Kudos to my buddy Duane Rankin at the Times for uncovering YouTube video of Crouch (#21) at Victory Valley. Good action -- if you can tolerate the schmaltzy announcer. www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NnD1ClA5Kw, www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j_EPlZiBw4, www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v_113gME_Y&NR=1
- Jucos have a reputation for being selfish, me-first, off-the-dribble, one-on-one clubs. But VVC really shared the ball in the clips I watched.
