Final Look: Division One Prospect Barrow

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a final look at Christ The King senior star prospect Maurice Barrow, who is preparing to play division one basketball in the state of Connecticut ...

All business. It's one way to describe Maurice Barrow and the way he approaches the game of basketball mentally and physically. This particular aspect is what attracted a very talented Fairfield coaching staff to the Queens area and pursue the forward.

One of the better senior high school basketball prospects in 2010, the hard-working coaching staff at Fairfield was able to convince Barrow, 6-foot-5, from Christ The King High School in Middle Village, New York to play for its program.

"I'm excited about the chance to play at Fairfield," Barrow previously stated.

The 210-pounder has always approached the game of basketball with one focus -- helping his team win basketball games.

"I committed to Fairfield because I believe the program is in the right direction, a chance to get into the NCAA tournament, a chance to win a conference title," he said.

Maurice said when he works out or practices, he's working on all aspects of his game. "I want to be a complete player, a player that can help the team win in many ways," he said.

Yes, all business. Fairfield has a terrific recruit on the way.
