From, Coach Hayford on Ederaine: “Cliff will have a terrific senior year.  He is a tenacious rebounder and can take other big guys off the dribble.  He’s a good off-the-ball defender and has strength that is better than his weight.  He has proven he can play the power forward or center position in this league, and we have big expectations for Cliff as a senior.”
