Hannah signs with pro team in Romania
By BARRY BURLESON
Clevin Hannah is going a long way from home to display his basketball talents.
The former Holly Springs High School Hawk has signed with Miercurea-Ciuc, a professional basketball team in Harghita County, Romania.
He signed Monday, Dec. 27, 2010, and left Tuesday, Jan. 4, for Romania.
Hannah played for coach Naylond Hayes at Holly Springs High School and helped lead the Hawks to back-to-back state championships in 2004 and 2005.
He graduated from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas, on May 14, 2010.
As a senior, Hannah was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference First Team and the MVC All-Tournament Team.
He led the NCAA in free-throw percentage for two weeks, tied his career-high points with 26 at Indiana State, set the Wichita State record for consecutive free throws with 43 straight and led WSU in scoring for the second-straight season. He was Shocker Radio Player of the Game eight times. At WSU, he had the third-best all-time season free throw percentage at 90.4 percent, tied for seventh-best career free throw percentage at 82.1 percent and finished 13th on WSU career assists lists despite playing just two seasons after a transfer from Chipola (Fla.) College.
As a junior at Wichita State, he was named to the MVC All-Newcomer Team and was MVC Newcomer of the Week two times. He also won the Warren Armstrong Jabali Assists Award and was chosen Shocker Radio Player of the Game six times.
Hannah is the son of Kervin and Tametria Hannah Daugherty and Robert McCullough of Rochester, N.Y. He is the grandson of Cheryl Brittenum Brannon and Mr. and Mrs. Larry Turner of Florissant, Mo. He is the brother of Kierra, Kervin, Kyle and Klemia.
