McClure also led the squad in free throw percentage (.849) to go along with 61 assists and 54 steals in 2012-13.

L-R welcomes back three starters and 12 letterwinners from a team which finished 18-9 last year including an 11-7 mark in league play.


Senior guard Jarvis Perry (Willingboro, N.J.) and senior forward Mark Terrell (Keswick, Va.) also return as starters for the Bears. Perry led the league in assists (132) while averaging 8.6 points and 4.4 rebounds per outing.
