John and Michael enjoyed outstanding senior seasons as they led the Falcons to a 20-11 season and a league championship under head coach Craig Battle. Michael was named Co-Most Valuable Player as he led the team with 72 made three pointers. John was a key part of the Falcons' defensive attack as he averaged nearly 2 steals per game in both each junior and senior seasons.
"One of the priorities in this year's recruiting class was recruiting winners. John and Michael absolutely fit that criteria. College Park had an outstanding season and it was due in large part to the leadership shown by John and Michael. I am excited to see their development over the course of their four year careers because they possess the ability and drive to reach their potential in the classroom and on the basketball floor," commented Head Coach Bryan Rooney.
Michael Daily commented on his commitment,"The two reasons I chose to come to Cal Maritime are the great education that I could benefit from here and the wonderful basketball program. Coach Rooney seems to be a really passionate coach who motivates his players to work hard. He creates the type of atmosphere I would like to be in as a player."
John was equally excited as he stated, "The reason I chose Cal Maritime is because it is a great school and it will help get me where I want to be in my profession. Also the school allows me the opportunity to see other parts of the world through the international connection and focus of the school."
John and Michael join Cal Maritime as the program comes off the best season in school history as the Keelhaulers set the school record for wins, won the Cal Pac Conference with an undefeated record, and advanced to the NAIA National Tournament for the first time in school history. The 2012-2013 season begins as the Keelhaulers host Cal Maritime Invitational starting November 2nd.
