Tommie McCune impresses in Oakland debut

It's been a long time coming, but sophomore Tommie McCune finally made his Oakland debut after sitting out for a season (and being kicked off the team and later reinstated), scoring a game-high 22 points and pulling down seven rebounds in Oakland's exhibition win over Tiffin Tuesday at the O'rena.
Oakland coach Greg Kampe stressed patience in evaluating McCune, who played just 58 minutes over 13 games before transferring from West Virginia:
“I don’t think we can think anything of Tommie,” Kampe told The Oakland Post. “It’s his first game. He hasn’t played in two years. He’s a top-100 recruit. We’ve never had that before.”
McCune also made a memorable 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer to extend the Golden Grizzlies' lead at the break. Watch the clip below of the Horizon League Network broadcast:

McCune told The Oakland Post: "I probably just got lucky. I actually thought (Travis) Bader was going to shoot it, but he passed it and I just put it up."
