Chemistry is so important to successful teams and we work hard at reaching that goal. We feel Montae will fit in well.”

I knew I would be surrounded by great people and I feel like this is where God wants me to be. I appreciate Coach Bailey and Grace for signing me and giving me the opportunity to continue my basketball career and education at Grace.” – Montae Harris
