Creighton women sign two

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Creighton Women's Basketball team announced the signing of MC McGrory and Lauren Works to letters-of-intent on Wednesday, Nov. 15. Both women will enter Creighton as freshmen in the fall of 2013 and have four years of eligibility remaining.

A 5-8 guard from Edina, Minn. McGrory enters her senior season at Edina HS with 770 career points in 78 games. Last season she tallied 345 points, despite sitting out 10 contests due to a concussion. She also grabbed 103 rebounds, 59 assists and 52 steals. Following the season, McGrory was named to the Minnesota State Class AAAA All-Tournament, the Minnesota Basketball News Second Team All-State Team. The Edina HS MVP was named to the ESPNHS Girls' Basketball HoopGurlz 100 Watch List earlier this season and the Breakdown Sports USA Top 50 Seniors for 2012.

"MC is strong and physical with a good mid-range game and a very competitive player," said Creighton head coach Jim Flanery. "She can score and has more versatility off the dribble, but we really like that she is a physical defender."

Works is a 5-7 guard from Lincoln Southwest HS in Lincoln, Neb., who has played both the point and off guard positions. A first-team all-city selection last winter, Works averaged a team-high 12.3 points per game to lead the Silver Hawks to a 17-8 record and berth in the Class A State Tournament. She has posted a combined 891 points over her first three seasons, including 162 three pointers. Works set the school record for the Silver Hawks with 32 points in one game last season. She has earned All-State Honorable Mention following each of her three seasons and also grabbed 308 rebounds in her career.

"Lauren is a very tough minded player that does the little things very well," said Creighton head coach Jim Flanery. "She has good hands, good instincts and will help make others around her better. She can shoot the ball from outside, but also averaged 5.5 rebounds per game. She is an outgoing leader and a winner."

"The most impressive thing about both MC and Lauren is their toughness," said Creighton head coach Jim Flanery. "They both compete extraordinarily hard and will do the type of things necessary to improve our team."
